Electronic Race systems topic

Dave Rudman posted this 27 July 2020

Hi All,

With the current climate and the challenges around Covid 19, I'm making enquiries into options to update our race system/computer and interested in what other clubs use.

We mainly race in classes, but also run handicap racing too.

I've sailed down in Salcombe on many occasion and there 54321 lighting system seems to work really well.

Ideally something you could perhaps sign in via an app?!? and be able to run various races at the same time, not to mention an easy upload onto our home website.

Looking forward to some responses.

Hi Dave

At Portchester we also use a three light system, 5 min - one light, 4 min - two lights, 1 min 3 lights, start - all off or one left on for recall. We use an automated horn system so you only need to switch the lights on and off. We installed LED lights like these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Waterproof-Outdoor-Lighting-Landscape-Parking/dp/B0895RWT8X/ref=ascdfB0895RWT8X/?tag=bingshoppinga-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=&hvpos=&hvnetw=o&hvrand=&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584070146875221&psc=1

We are developing a bespoke remote sign in system, but haven't got it quite ready yet.

HISC use sailevent: https://sailevent.net/ for signing in, tallying etc.

Hope that helps
