This app is designed to help manage PHRF sailboat race scoring for individual races. You can quickly add/delete boats, change/track racing status (Over Early, DNS, DNF, Finished, Racing), update position, edit finishing position as needed to correct errors and email or text the results immediately. (Emails include a CSV attachment for easy upload to scoring programs and spreadsheets.) The race starts with the pre-start countdown (0 - 10 Min).
Once the race is started boat status is updated by the program or the user by tapping a boat. Before the start, status cycles between PRESTART and DNS. After the start and before 5 minutes of racing, status cycles between RACING and Over Early. After 5 minutes, status cycles between FINISHED, DNF and RACING.
Fixed bug in editing boat.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a fantastic App as long as you only have one PHRF fleet. If a boat abandons the race after starting, they are not scored DNF. It would be nice if you finished the race without stopping those that abandoned it could score them DNF with whatever + you choose.
Originally, I was hoping for multiple divisions with the ability to keep the clock counting so that an overall for all fleets started could be computed. Just the input for DNF Boats would be nice for now.
I text and email the results to the racers before they hit the dock! Great App
A helpful addition to racing
It works well but I wish it did more. For $0.99, it's well worth the price. I'd be willing to pay more for an upgraded version. Would be nice if you could do multi-races or have different course lengths for different fleets. Converting Portsmouth Yardstick to phrf would be nice as well. You can't put in negative phrf numbers. I use it to figure out our finish before RC post the results.
I want to return this app. It's not useful for what I need to do.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
