RegattaTimer is a simple large easy to read in direct sunlight Regatta Timer with selections of 5,4,3,2 and 1 minute. With a large easy to press start button that changes to reset when you press it. The alarm goes off every minute then every 10 seconds of the last minute then every second of the last 10 seconds. It also has sync up and sync down buttons.
Rev 1.4 Added a loop function “countdown repeat” for timing multiple starts.
The timer works in portrait and landscape modes.
This is my first attempt at creating a regatta timer. Please if you find a problem or have suggestions for improvement email me at:
Bad reviews are not productive emails to me will give me a chance to improve of fix the app so eventually it will become a great app.
Updated to run on latest ios

Not bad, but always 2 seconds behind.
Good countdown with audible beeps. Wish the sounds were louder. Worst problem is that after pressing the start button, there is a lag before it starts counting down. No matter how hard we try to press the button in sync with the start of the sequence, the app always lags two seconds. Sync up/down are helpful.

This app is extremely easy to use. With the recent addition of the loop function it is perfect for R/C personnel starting multiple fleets in a "rolling start" mode. Starting flags with use definitions are also a great pocket reference.
The idea is good, but there are 2 big problems. The worst is that if the phone goes into sleep/lock, the timer stops. Why can't it continue to time, like other timer apps I have for cooking. Second problem is that it is too easy to accidentally reset.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
