Registration

There are a number of options available for Regatta Registration and Scoring.

Since 2007 Regatta Network has partnered with US 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, US Sailing Regatta Network has streamlined regatta management and hosting an event less stressful.  From online registration, payment processing, scoring and every step in between, US 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, US 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/.

Frequently Asked Questions

Scoring
Can we have the alternative of entering bow numbers instead of having to scroll down and double click? This is especially slow when you have a fleet of 40 or more.

Yes. This already exists as an option. (Assuming the event has bow numbers enabled.) This would work the same as the sail number “finder” start typing the bow number and the system will automatically reduce your choice until you get to either the group or the bow number. (Were you using the sail number quick find function?)
If it is a group, entering the separator (usually a “:” but with sail and bow, it may be a “/”) I’ve used the system to score the Boomerang Regatta with several hundred Opti’s with no problem and no scrolling.

 

Penalties
Adding a penalty takes a longer time than other programs (3 clicks and two scrolls) instead of 3 clicks (the scroll takes too much time).

To add a penalty, use the number “finder” to locate the entrant, select the penalty, and hit the right arrow. 2-3 key strokes, a drop down, and a right arrow.

 

One cannot finish the rest of the unscored boats at one time with a common penalty.

 

Yes, you can. Select all boats by selecting the first boat, hold the CTRL key and select the last boat, Select the penalty and double click within the list (or click “Move Selected”)

 

Can the Z flag 20% be standard and not have to be entered every time? There could be an exception for 40% and larger Z flag penalties.

 

Is there a question here? We had a standard Z penalty or 20%, but almost immediately someone needed another penalty. The programming solution is to make it an open variable. Since you can finish more than one Z flag finisher together (see above), it should be easier.

 

When you miss entering a boat, it would be great if you had an insert option instead of having to put it at the bottom and “move up” until you find the correct line.

 

We’ll take that under advisement.

 

After scoring
In order to proof the results, it is helpful to look at the overall results to ensure that it looks logical. With your program, it takes 3 clicks and 2 scrolls. It would be great if there was an overall button on the individual results page.

 

Details for each race are available by clicking on the race number from the overall results page. (as noted at the top and bottom of the results page). Did you look at that? It is available as the preview (with all races and throwouts shown) or from the public page.

 

 

Results for posting
The final results when printed out do not show the place (1st, 2nd, etc.) on the left side…only on the right side. It is also helpful to have lines under each sailor’s results to make it easier to read.

 

In their web form the results have a shading behind alternate lines. You have to enable this on your browser by enabling background colors and images. Instructions in doing so are part of the scoring tutorial. (Did you look at that?)

 

Paperwork
The paperwork is not useful. It does not put the check-in or finish sheets on one page. One also cannot manipulate it to put it on one page. One cannot eliminate some of the unnecessary columns such as time or boat name for one-design regattas.

 

This is the first request we have had for a one page, check-in or finish sheet. The system is web based so you need to be used to working with changing Explorer or Firefox print options. If you have a specific format you need, we have probably created it for another event. But you have to let us know what you want.
