Each accompanying boat was equipped with a radio. They were also used on the other functional boats, and at the start of the race in Hel, and at the finish line in Gdynia. Communication was assured between all the boats and the organizers waiting for players on the shore. Appropriate communication range was guaranteed by repeater installed on the roof of Radmor building.  Proper network operation was monitored by our stuff from one of the boats and from Radmor building. Before the marathon all communication components have been tested, proper ranges have been examined and users were trained from equipment usage.
