Scoring Programs

 

The following programs have been evaluated by members of the Race Management Committee and other US Sailing officials.

These programs are listed as a service to members of US Sailing and the sailing community. Programs listed on this site have been tested to ensure that they conform to the scoring requirements of The Racing Rules of Sailing. Each was subject to a one-design low-point scoring test, including Appendix A8.1 and A8.2 tie-breaking.

US Sailing does not specifically endorse any program, but encourages users to consider all aspects of any program – including ease of use, documentation, support (including location of support for timely response), compatibility, and ability to upload and download data for evaluation and distribution – before selecting it for use.

Program authors who are interested in having their programs evaluated and included in this list should contact US Sailing at raceadmin@ussailing.org.

Please note that Excel/spreadsheet-based scoring options are not currently being evaluated due to the potential for errors to be introduced through easy-to-make changes.

Scoring Program Reviews are listed in three categories:

  1. Standalone programs that do not rely on an internet connection.
  2. Standalone scoring programs that rely on an internet connection for operation.
  3. Scoring programs that are part of a comprehensive regatta registration and management system. Only the functionality of the scoring program itself has been evaluated.
