Since 2007 Regatta Network has partnered with U.S. Sailing to offer a comprehensive sailing solution for online registration and event management. After processing in excess of 200,000 registrations for more than 6,700 sailing events, U.S. Sailing Regatta Network has streamlined regatta management and hosting an event less stressful. From online registration, payment processing, scoring and every step in between, U.S. Sailing Regatta Network is designed to make your events run smoothly.
Entrant data is entered once and cascades directly to entrant lists, fleet splits, scratch sheets, entry/waiver forms, check-in sheets, scoring, and email/SMS messaging consoles. All U.S. Sailing Regatta Network events automatically create a simple event web site, mobile web site, or all elements can be easily integrated into your own web site. Whether you are responsible for an annual regatta, one design championship, distance race, junior regatta, match racing, series race, or a sailing camp, U.S. Sailing Regatta Network is designed to streamline and simplify your event management.
If you haven’t already set up your account, log into the Regatta Network Management Console. The console is located at: www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/.
To set up your regatta for scoring go to Regatta Scoring and Fleet Information. This section sets up the basic fleets and scoring information for your event.
If your event has a provision for a throw out after X raced, don’t enter anything into the throw-out box until you’ve reached the throw out threshold. Otherwise the system will assign throw-outs immediately. Class information is fairly straight forward, and if using Regatta Network for scoring, it will apply the correct scoring method to each class.
HINT: You can easily move entrants to new classes, however if your event usually forms a specific one design class (J/24 for example), it is easier to designate that class initially, rather than add it after registration is open.
Current scores are provisional and subject to modification keeps this copy on scoring until clicked off. If this box is not checked, scores will become“official after midnight on the last day of the event.
