Description: The program is a stand-alone (used to be Microsoft Access-based) application designed to manage racing throughout an entire season. Tasks are divided between Race Administrator and Race Officer roles. The Race Administrator must set up all classes, boats and races. The Race Officer can then edit starting times for the races and enter results. Result entries can either be made by typing or by point and click with the mouse. The Race Administrator edits the race results for protests and prints or publishes the standings. Web pages can be made directly from the report screen. Users should understand the provisions of Appendix A before using this or any other scoring program. Note that the program includes the Portsmouth Yardstick data.
Ordering: Program can be obtained for the HAL’s Race Results website. The program is free. Services associated with the program are charged for. A web-based version called HalSail is available and allows access to data on the cloud with Mac’s and tablets.
