Once a regatta has been created, the first screen prompts you for regatta parameters such as the name of the event, and the classes that will participate.  This screen also allows you to select several scoring systems, and allows you to define penalties.


Enter / Edit Entries

The next step is to enter the information about the competitors who will sail the event.  You will be prompted for information such as sail number, bow number and the name of the crew.  If it is a handicap class, you will also be prompted for the boat's rating.


Start a Race

To enter finishing order, select Enter/Edit Finishes from the main screen, then select edit finishes.  Double clicking on an entry from the "Not Yet Finished" window moves it to the "Finished" window.  If it is a handicap event, you are prompted for the time the boat finished.


View / Print Reports

Once all the boats have finished, selecting Reports / View Reports from the main screen generates a summary page for of each race of the regatta, as well as the cumulative scores for the event.  Penalties have been applied, ties have been broken, and discards if any have been factored in.  This page is printable for posting and distribution at the regatta.
