    Posted: 01 Dec 21 at 4:36pm
I seem to remember this topic was discussed some time ago, but I simply cant find it.

In any case, I am looking for a software solution that incorporates:
SignOn/Off by app/mobile - selection of boat/crew from membership/boat list
Start/Finish times
Results by Class/PY Group

We already use Sailing Club Manager for membership and Sailwave for current race system - but Sailwave is quite complex and not the best for the occassional volunteer/dutyman PRO .

Any thoughts on the best all-in-one solution out there?

Starcross have a system that does what you are asking.  Mark who wrote the program follows the forum.

I normally lurk without posting, but I'll put my oar in as I am the author of Boat Timer which does do online sign-on and results. It was primarily written to time finishes quickly, as that is not the easiest thing to do with pen&paper in a busy club race... https://www.rotor-rig.com/apps/boat-timer/

Thanks Ian. Looks interesting. Could you tell me which clubs (regularly) use it please? Reference cases are always useful  ;-)

The app is free and doesn't require you to sign up, so it is not easy to tell. I have had emails from a number of clubs who were/are using it - including some in Aus & NZ - but can't say for sure.

The online sign-on & results are fairly new, I tried out the results at the Frensham 2.4mR Open earlier this year (results are here). The results system works out races& series with very little effort. At the moment the results system assumes you are using the app to time finishes, but this winter (cos I sail a bit less!) I am working on a separate results system that lets you type in finish times/positions instead. Who knows if it will catch on, but it would be nice for clubs to have a simple way to do results.

Not everyone is keen to give up pen&paper - and I have a lot of sympathy for that. But I do this stuff so we can all spend more time sailing and less time doing the admin  Smile
