It’s easy to use, with cross-links between the rules and definitions.

What's New in Version 1.3.1
Updated Comments along with two important bug fixes and performance improvements.
Crippled Product! Requires upgrade to the better one
Very poor product because they only give you the very basic rules and leave out all the right of way rules at marks, bouy room, obstructions, assisting other sailors, the fine points that a racing sailor needs at the finger tips.
Also quoting the rules that are not in this app is not fair. At least give them a title in parenthesis. : " that means that only rule 15 and 16 limit the rights of the right-of-way boat"
The Pro product should be in the App Store if they want to sell it. I didn't see it. Insted you have to buy thius one and the buy next one.
As a learning product, this is way below the mark.
Basic but helps
Has some good info that I can get quick
The pro would be better. May think about going for it this season
I'll go pro in the next few days. I liked it !
It's a demo it does what I expected, got me wanting more...
