Sailboat Race Starter is an ISAF Countdown Timer for racing sailboats. It is the #1 sailing app in the App Store and the best selling racing timer in over 30 countries!

- Includes sync feature which allows you to calibrate your time with the race committee if you miss the warning signal.

- Audible alerts and vibration as timer approaches race start.

- Mark both ends of the start line using integrated GPS and the app will determine how far away from the line you are, and how long it will take to get there. The FIRST and ONLY app in the App Store to offer this feature.

- Screen stays alive and will not go to sleep during start sequence, unlike similar copycat apps.

- BIG display is designed to help you find information at a glance in bright sunlight.


- Time the race after start sequence, by popular request!

Simple and accurate

Love this app, while it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of others it's easy to use and perfect for race starts


Watch app please

Hi, app is good but it would benefit from Apple Watch app with same functionality. When I'm main trimmer and have to use app there are simply not enough hands to hold the phone.


Cool App

Like the app and the included functionality to mark / time the starting line. It would be cool if the flags appeared in the last 5 minutes of any timer amount or in the increments for each class start. For example, I could set the timer at the beginning of the regatta for 25 minutes to coincide with the start of my class. Within the last 5 minutes, the flags and notification (even the timing to start line). for starting sequence would display. Better yet, it would be good to see them for each 5 minute starting sequence within the 25 minutes along with a sound or alert on screen. Just suggestions - no complaints b
