Been looking for something like that for a while Simon to help OOD record results. Can it manage multiple starts/ fleets?  Can the results be exported to a csv file or similar for import to the likes of sailwave (historical reasons)
RS200 and returning to a Musto, ex 300

Afternoon All,
I've developed a timing app to make timing (PYN or IRC) handicap races much easier.

You simply have to enter the boats beforehand (or schedule the race and let competitors enter themselves online) and then click a button every time they cross the line. It will calculate corrected times and series results, and can echo the results to a club website as soon as the race finishes.

It can also time pursuit races, and the start times (with countdowns) can be viewed live on as many other devices as you like.

It runs in a browser (so the OOD does not need to download anything on to their phone) and it is very robust. If your phone (or laptop, tablet, etc) goes swimming you can pick up the race on another device. If you're in an area without internet access, races will be saved on your device until you have a data connection.

For big events, multiple phones can work together on the same race.

It's now in beta version, and I'd be extremely grateful for any feedback - from work flow to typos. Fingers crossed you like it as it's been a huge amount of work.

The URL is

Many Thanks
