This is a great App for sailing clubs with small fleet racing, It creates instant results which can be uploaded to cloud storage if required. Robbie has recently put in a lot of hard work to add many new features including competitor signon, and position on race course for simplifed finisheds. It interfaces seamlessly with Sailwave the scoring system used by many sailing clubs. The Interface is simple and once set up, a 3-minute tutorial can have any one up and running. Go on give it a go along side your existing scoring system you won’t be disappointed. Robbie welcomes any feedback.

Is there any way to *upload* a custom logo? At the moment I have to manually put it into an internal folder, which seems to be non-trivial in modern Androids

Hi, and many thanks for taking the time to write a review :o) Due to Google security changing from Android 11 onwards, the app can no longer access the 'downloads' area of the devices, but I have added code allowing the import certain file types via the 'share' function. Please see DSRC web site under Files/Docs, post on Facebook, or email :o)

Fantastic App for Radio Controlled Sailing Results. Used to gather finish times against sail numbers this app enables you to score races & supply emailed pdf results immediately after each race if required or even better it enables you to record a whole series of a days sailing of multiple races & then import them into Sailwave & produce a result sheet scored with a series winner (including elapsed times from first boat finished of each race) within 2 mins of the last boat finishing.
