Electronic Race Management

Hi All,

You may have noticed me (Keith) with a tablet over the last few weeks,  I have been working with a chap Robbie to improve his Android race management and scoring app.

If anyone fancies giving it a try alongside our manual race management system give me shout, even it is just for one race on a Sunday, and any feedback would be most useful.  I have attached a crib sheet and test fleet file below.

Any questions just drop me an email www@rbsc.org.uk

It will run on any Android device.  (I have sourced the club an old 7 inch tablet so you can take a look)  or just download it to your android phone of tablet.

Details and download of the Android Race management system can be found on google play here

(Google Play and the App help are the best place to start for a comprehensive overview)

It can be used to assist with paper results or as a stand alone scoring app as the output can be imported into sailwave and is available via a could drive, Dropbox, Google etc.

You just select the boats that are racing and just tap on them when they complete each lap.

It now copes with multiple starts, general recalls etc.
