Staying at home

Stay-at-home orders are causing us all to find a new rhythm. While staying safe, the competitor page finally got some attention, and is now available by clicking on a competitor name in series results. Let us know what you think and if there's a stat you think would be useful, please let us know.

To the cloud...

Along with changing SailScores' hosting service, a few updates have been made to improve site performance. We're still finding some places that can be sped up and expect to continue making tweaks to help the site's responsiveness.

But for the next few months feature updates will slow down. We're working on a mobile app to support offline score entry integrated with this site.

New Feature

If the location of your club is set, SailScores will download and include the current weather conditions when you enter race results. The weather conditions will be displayed in the headers of series results, with a wind direction arrow, wind speed and selected icon.

New Features
Faster creation of multiple competitors.

The page to create competitors now can create multiple competitors at once, and can handle competitors pasted from a spreadsheet such as Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel.

Club request page

We're working on speeding up the process of creating a new club. Requests still need to be approved by a person, but the form now gives a better idea of what information is needed to initially set up the club.

Admin tips

Guidance for newly setup clubs is now provided as on-page tips suggesting activities that should be completed for race scoring.

New Features

Series can now be exported to a stand-alone html page or comma separated file (.csv). Look for the buttons in the lower right below a series results.

Create and Merge Competitors

Competitors can now be created while entering a race's results. And if you later discover that a racer already existed in the club, the two competitors can be merged.

New Features

Regatta support: a regatta is featured on the front page for a week before and after the event, and is highlighted on the club home page for three weeks before and after the event.

A regatta will have fleets of competitors different from the usual club fleets, and will show competitors' home clubs.

August 16th, 2019

New Features

Series can include a column with changes in competitors' rankings.

Historical series can lock results, so that changes in the scoring system or the races will no longer change the series.

August 10th, 2019

New Features

Custom Scoring systems are now working.

Also some enhancements have been made to support long series: helm name is now shown every 25 races and as the last column of the results.

June 7th, 2019 Update

New Features

Enhancements to the race editing page are getting rolled out today:

These changes should make entering results on a phone a much better experience. The changes came about after using this with great success for the last several weeks at Lake Harriet.
Other News

We've consolidated our issues list with the SailScores code at GitHub. Some of the issues have a "Help wanted" tag, where we'd love to hear more input from potential users.

February 25th, 2019 is kinda live. There are still features to be added, but the basics are working. In the next few months there will be plenty of testing and tweaks. Hopefully a few new features as well. If you are interested in helping out with the testing, please reach out and let us know.
