Also note that we have updated both Sailing Instructions and Race Management Instructions. Latest versions can be found on our Resources/Forms tab.
A newly-created audio file to assist the RC with the starting sequence is now on our Resources tab; you can also download the file here:

Many of our members have begun to use the RaceQs smartphone application to track their race. It's free, simple to use, and allows for all particpants to view a fully integrated race picture after the race. It is a great learning tool and we have received absolutely great feedback on its capabilities. On the Race Events tab to the right of each completed race, you can click on a RaceQs replay of each race in addition to being able to click on the results. RaceQs can be downloaded for free for both Apple and Android smartphones. To see a video on how RaceQs works, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfgAojXuEiA
If you can't see the results on the Race Events tab, please create a username on the LogIn page and you will be able to see Race Events and results by next day.
