“Sail Times” is a “time-on-time” scoring solution for sailboat racing providing:
• Midrace position calculations adjusted for PHRF
• Lead and lag time in minutes
• Immediate PHRF adjusted final results as each boat posts its final time
• Broadcasts mark-times and boat information to each entry in the regatta
• One-touch send of results to Facebook

“Sail Times” eliminates:
• Hand calculation of race results
• Calculating course lengths, especially helpful when last minute changes are made
• Noisy radio broadcasts

“Sail Times” is based on a paper published in 1996 by Russ Cardoza: “The Racer’s Guide to Time on Time Scoring” available on the SwapMeet Consulting website. It describes the algorithms used and the pros and cons of the solution.
