Chester Race Week is bringing both sailors and race organizers important benefits through its investment in Yacht Scoring, a web-based, race management and scoring system used by some of the competitive sailing world’s top organizations including the 2013 Rolex Farr 40 World Championships, 2014 J/70 World Championships, and Charleston Race Week – the only annual keelboat race week in North America larger than Chester Race Week, based on number of competing boats.
Benefits will include:
-Real-time online scoring so anyone with a web or wifi connection can see results from the water or dock. Race result reporting will be managed by a trained specialist on the water for all race courses
-Instant, direct communication with skippers and crews before, during and after each race via convenient email notice function. Note: Email notificaton is a courtesy service. Official notices will continue to come from race committee boats via traditional flag and horn signals.
-Easier, faster online registration and payment service will reduce headaches all around
-Handy mobile web sites for smart phones via www.ChesterRaceWeek.com and www.YachtScoring.com/mobile – type “Chester” into List of Events, then bookmark the Chester Race Week 2014 results site
In addition to Yacht Scoring, Race Week sailors will also appreciate the new www.ChesterRaceWeek.com site that can handle the heavy loads of 1,200 sailors seeking race results, is tablet and smart phone compatible, and makes it easier and more intuitive for sailors to find what they need, quickly.
