ISAF reveals revised regatta reporting format
by ISAF on 27 Jun 2013
The ISAF XML Regatta Reporting format (ISAF XRR) is an XML-schema defined by the International Sailing Federation to accommodate a universal standard for the transfer of information allowing instant integration of results management systems with the ISAF results database.
Use of the ISAF XRR message service allows for rapid publication of regatta results enabling regatta management teams to automate some of their office procedures and ensuring the ISAF Sailor biographies are immediately updated with results at the end of a regatta.
The latest version, v1.3.1, includes improvements on reporting regatta results, the standardisation of dates and times throughout the reports and validation of several ISAF related codes. The service allows the upload of racing results (fleet, match and team racing), download of sailor biography information and the download of regatta information.

which includes technical specifications and details of the software required to make use of the service.
