Abstract This paper introduces two sport-related projects conducted by the Satellite Positioning and Orientation Research Team (SPORT) at RMIT University - speed sailing world record challenge and development of a smart GPS rower tracking system. In the first project, both traditional and contemporary surveying technologies are investigated to assist the Macquarie Speed Sailing Team to reliably record and subsequently claim a world speed sailing record. In the second project, an integrated rower tracking system has been developed in collaboration with other research partners and the system has been used prior to and during the Athens Olympic Games. Three Olympic rowing medals were won by Australia. The technology, research procedures and major developments are presented.
