It’s strongly advised to have a practise before race day.
There is a practise race set up, use the following in the App:
Click "Update Club List".
Select Club: "Ben: Ben Club"
Click "Update Race List".
Select Race: Scullers Head 2013
Click "Update Race Details".
Select Location: End
Click "Start Timing"
Below are two links to a video from the finish of the Scullers Head 2013 to practise with; there are 500+ boats in this race, so the race in the app is a subset!
You’ll need sound as you can’t see the numbers, but there is someone telling you what number is coming up. There is also beep when they go over the line.
Try to press “GO” for every boat; if there are boats close together, just get them without selecting the number, and then if you can, edit the number in afterwards (wait for a gap or until you’ve finished. In reality you can look to see when a gap is coming so easier work out when you can do this; for the hard one maybe watch the video first before doing the timing to work out how big the gaps are).
When you’ve finished each part of the video, click “Save Times” then “Yes”, then “Upload Results” (you can do this once or after each video – it doesn’t matter. You can also go back to overview and back to doing the timing as many times as you like).
Numbers 25 to 23
(they’re out of order, 7 boats in total).
Numbers 1 to 6
(they’re out of order, 10 boats in total).
It’s much easier to do in real life where you can see what’s coming and the gaps, so if you can do the above, you’re good to go!
One last thing you can try - if for some reason the results couldn't upload to the server, you can email them to the race orgainser. Try this by clicking on the ... at the top right, and then "Emergency Email Results" - it'll take you to your preferred email client with the results attached.
