This is a sail racing app for sailing enthusiasts and professionals. Application is used as an additional tool next to standard yacht equipment to take tactical decisions faster.
Sail Racer app suggest the favored end of the start line, monitors your position, time and guides the maneuvers that the start line was hit at the last moment with the best possible speed.
With the app it is easy to navigate in racing area. Interface is designed in a way that course efficiency, the lay lines and shifts could be captured in a splash of a second. Skipper does not need to analyze the numbers and can concentrate on handling the boat, maximizing performance and playing tactical games with competitors.

Ratings and Reviews
Works beautifully with SailTimer
Works as a suitable replacement for instruments on my boat. No crashes. Instrument display is superb. Timer works very well. The wind is too shifty here to make sense of its headers/lifts data, just I keep my eyes on the water. Same goes for polars, haven’t been able to make use of that data either. Been using it for years, still love it.
The software has many needed components. However; it is difficult for the novice racer (me) to use. I would suggest a detailed step by step operating procedure and simplifying the user interface. I spent many hours trying to sort it all out and wrote my own procedures. The good news it turned out to be teaching tool. Difficult to use though. DataLink looks like a helpful interface. More information would be helpful if onboard data bus NIMA, SeaTalk connections were explained. Can I do it, or do I need to hire a technician?
This app seemed to have a lot of promise and worked fairly well......once. After that, it crashed over and over. It would reboot asking if I wanted to send a crash report and if it would stay alive long enough for me to push the "ok" button, it would crash again.
I'm sorely disappointed and just to ensure they kicked me while I was down, I clicked the "app support" in the App Store just to be directed to a nonexistent page.
