2020 International Ten Rater Australian Championship

Introducing the A Fleet App

Jul 10, 2019

There are a multitude of scoring software applications available, however very few adapted for radio sailing. Well now there is!

\images\afleet_appOver the years I’ve used numerous sailing scoring software programs and apps as well as online solutions, but inevitably I’ve fallen back to the popular Sailwave software which was originally created in 2001 by Colin Jenkins in the UK. Sailwave is an excellent product for single fleet scoring, the user friendly interface makes it simple for almost anyone to score an event and publish results.

While using scoring systems such as Sailwave have been great, for radio sailing clubs who want to score results electronically lakeside, it’s not so simple!

Across my travels I met John McPherson from New Zealand.  John is the developer, and a keen radio sailor. He’s sailed at hundreds of club days and dozens of regattas. John figured there had to be a better way to manage the scoring, and set about discovering it. Along came the A Fleet App!

\images\afleet_app2The A Fleet App, available for Android phones & tablets, lifts the bar when scoring lakeside. With the cost of tablets plummeting and the low cost of this app, just $5.49 from the Google Play Store, it is a simple and cheap solution for clubs wishing to score their race results lakeside.

Features of the app include the ability to retain a database of members for selection on race day, one click scoring and the ability to share the results immediately, whether mid-event or at the end of the day.

I found A Fleet App simple to use, easy to add competitors, enter and edit results and email the results at the end of the day, all from my Samsung tablet.

The app in it’s current form provides the capability for single fleet racing which is ideal for regular radio sailing club racing. The great news is that the app is being developed for multi fleet racing and I was given the opportunity to review the app running the HMS scoring system and it looks great! The multi fleet version is expected to be released later this year.

The A Fleet App is ideal for lakeside scoring.

Scoring software developed by radio sailors for radio sailing, what more could we want?

2019 IOM World Championship - Brazil final three days
Apologies for the missed reporting, but the RSAWA website had a few technical difficulties over the last few days, which I was unable to rectify. However, we are fixed now and good to go. By now, you will most likely know that Zvonko went back to back, winning the 2019 edition of the Worlds to go with his 2017 title. That is a really consistent performance. Second place went to Zvonko's teammate, Ante Kovasevic. These two were sailing Kantun 2 hulls. Rounding out the podium was our good mate Ian Vickers from NZ, who no doubt will be pleased with the performace of his new V11 design

2019 IOM World Championships - Brazil Day 3
The Championship has reached the half way mark, and tomorrow is a rest day - which by all accounts will be very welcome. The heat was on in Porto Alegra today - on and off the water. Reigning World Champion, Zvonko Jelacic made a solid move today, putting a small but solid buffer between himself and the chasing pack.

2019 IOM World Championship - Brazil Day 2
It's been said that you don't ever win a Championship on Day 1 but you sure can lose a Championship on Day 1. Getting off to a good start is the aim of all the skippers, because if you have a poor day to open your account, the catch-up may not happen. Several skippers must be feeling this way after their opening, and there must be others who are breathing a sigh of relief that they are off and running.
