THIS IS NOT A GAME.
Application is used as an additional tool next to standard yacht equipment to take tactical decisions faster.
Sail Racer app suggest the favored end of the start line, monitors your position, time and guides the maneuvers that the start line was hit at the last moment with the best possible speed.
With the app it is easy to navigate in racing area. Interface is designed in a way that course efficiency, the lay lines and shifts could be captured in a splash of a second. Skipper does not need to analyze the numbers and can concentrate on handling the boat, maximizing performance and playing tactical games with competitors.
Every wind gust and lull affect the boat heading and is visualized in a “easy to read” shift bar on the top of compass rose. Course Deviation Indication – bar on the bottom of the compass rose displays long run course deviation between two marks.
Sail Racer is designed and developed by sailors. It has everything to sail on the edge.
- Course over ground
- Speed over ground
- Turn instruction
- Mark and Start line Range
- Wind shift indicator
- Course deviation indicator
- Cross track error
- Count down time
- Time to burn
- Tracker etc.

We are integrating our app with standard boat electronics, various multifunctional displays, smart watches and augmented reality glasses.
Have a good start and even better finish.
The new release adds many features for optimal approaching to the start line.
A minimum display resolution 400*240 is required.
The following information are provided in a glance.
1) When navigating to the next waypoint (see figure 1):
- target waypoint bearing (orange point)
- target waypoint air distance (orange number on top right)
- real boat speed (red number on top right)
- real wind direction (blue arrow)
- layline position (green line)
- distance to layline (red number on top left)
- distance along layline (green number)
- total distance to target waypoint (red number on bottom= distance to layline + distance along layline)
- effective speed to target (red number on bottom)
- polar diagram of effective speed
2) When approaching the start line (see figure 2):
-start line position as bearing of right and left ends (green arc and red and green points)
-boat route and its intersection with start line (red dotted line)
-distance to the nearest point of start line (orange number on top left)
-distance to the start line along current route (green number on the top left)
-time to start line with current route and speed (green number on the bottom center)
-time to the nearest point of start line with current speed (orange number on the bottom center)
-count down timer (blue number on the bottom center)
All you have to do is to insert the waypoint position and wind direction then Regatta will display the route to target with layline and polar diagram of effective boat speed.
The polar diagram is not the usual polar diagram that is a boat intrinsic. The effective speed is the airline distance to target divided by the estimated time to target, given the current route going to layline and then to target along the layline. The effective speed is an index of effectiveness of route and varies with the route angle. The polar diagram shows you which is the route angle that optimizes the time to target and compares effective speeds for different angles.
There are many ways to insert waypoints. You can do it manually or using a map or using Regatta as a bearing compass.
You can find more info here: http://www.embedia.it/files/regatta/man_en_5_0.pdf.
Please consider trying the free demo version Regatta basic.
The Regatta Basic is a demonstration version limited in the number of waypoints that can be memorized in the same time (max 4 including 2 for start line) and in total number of waypoints (max 30).
Please leave your feedbacks and suggestions here:
There are severe layout issues with small resolution displays (less than 400*240).
Using Android's text-to-speech (TTS) technology*, this app is like a spare crew, focused solely on your start sequence. Define when you want to hear the time. Start it running hours in advance, connect an earpiece and zip your fragile phone in a dry inside pocket. Never again be late at the start.
*To speak the time this app requires TTS to be insatlled, which is available as a free download from the Market.
It convert nautical units to one more know on land and units from different parts of the word with which you may be not familiar.
Simple and clear calculator like layout allows easy comparison.
Big integrated keyboard makes entering the data easy even when on board of yacht.
Currently supported units:
* Beaufort scale
* meters per second
* kilometers per hour
* miles per hour
* Sea State
* nautical miles
If you are missing any units or have any problems please let us know.
App for sailors, yachts and boats, containing
a set of nautical applications:
- Magnetic Compass
- Speedometer in knots, Course over Ground
- Distance measurement/Log in Nautical miles and meters. Also useful for anchoring.

This is a free evaluation copy of iRegatta Pro, where you can test the features for 4 minutes. You can buy access to the features you like to use as In-App purchases, or you can buy the Pro version to have Basic, NMEA and AIS features included.
The build-in GPS unit and the unique graphical possibilities of these devices, make them ideal for such an application.
IMPORTANT: iRegatta requires internal GPS or Bluetooth/WiFi connection to NMEA data, to get the sailing data required for calculations.
We have been testing with the DMK box from dmkyacht.com and weatherdocks products (easyais.de).
iRegatta has been available for iPhone/iPad for years, and has a lot of useful features.
Now the Android version has similar features, except that NMEA instrument data also can be used using a BlueTooth connection (or a Wifi connection).
If you have a Android phone anyway, this is a cheap way to introduce you to the benefits of a GPS device, to help you leverage your regatta sailing performance.
A downside is of cause the fact that most phones are not waterproof! But there are products out there, you can put your device into, to make it waterproof and still be able to operate it while sailing. In this way you can either mount it near your other instruments on your keelboat or strap it to your arm if you are sailing a dinghy.
Here you can see your 4 most important readouts, fore instance Heading, Speed, VMG and Wind Direction.
By tapping and holding one of the 4 main readouts for 2 seconds, they become configurable. Scroll down the list to chose the information you want to display. Many of the possible readouts are only updated if you have NMEA input.
If navigating towards a waypoint, you can configure your readouts to display distance/bearing.
There also is a lift indicator, showing you if you have been lifted by a wind shift, and graphs showing the development in your speed and VMG over a configurable amount of time and a permormance bar.
Set your wind direction by storing your heading while sailing on upwind on starboard and port tack, or simply type it in.
Here you have your count down (including sync), and you can mark your starting line and iRegatta will calculate the distance to the line and indicate the favorite line end, if wind direction is set.
Navigate to your favorite pre-stored waypoints, create a route of waypoints or create a new temporary waypoint by distance/bearing.
Here you can see your location, Max speed and Trip odometer. On the left hand side there is a polar diagram. tap it and it'll increase in size. Change the wind speed to see the different polars. These polars are the base for the performance bar in the race view.
If you choose to turn on "NMEA input via BlueTooth" in the iRegatta setting, you will be able to receive instrument informations from your boat, if it's able to transmit NMEA information using BlueTooth.
Be aware that many instrument informations can bee transmitted in different NMEA syntax. Not all NMEA syntaxes are implemented in iRegatta.
If you have an AIS receiver that transmits AIS data as NMEA sentences, an AIS radar will show all vessel information received.
Since 1947 it has been famed for its excellent coverage of all aspects of racing, from local dinghy and keelboat events to the heights of the Olympic Games, America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race.
As well as the top end events, each issue is full of vital information, including technique and tips from some of the best coaches in the sport, interviews and profiles, kit and equipment guides, and tests of the latest boats.
There is no better way to improve your sailing than with Yachts & Yachting magazine - now on the iPad for the first time!
