Sailing Race Starts is the ultimate yacht racing starting system. It provides the sound signals to start races and voice countdowns for use on the racing yacht. The Free version contains a limited set of features and options; the Pro version has them all.
Sailing Race Starts works equally well on phones and tablets, and has many features! Here are some of them: 5-minute RRS Rule 26 horn starts, 5-minute RRS Rule 26 gun starts, 3-minute ISSA starts (high school), 3-minute ICSA starts (collegiate), 5-minute voice starts, 5-minute match racing starts, 3-minute voice starts, ISSA 2-minute and 1-minute starts (for practice), ICSA 2-minute and 1 minute starts (for practice), selectable heads-up sound, selectable heads-up time, rolling starts, individual recall, general recall, postpone up, general recall/postpone down, abandon, exact time race began, countdown timer continues in the negative after start to measure time after start and race duration, sound pad for finish sounds (beep and whistle) and all other other needed sounds, quick user presets, and visual cues for flags. All ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing race signals are shown and explained. Voice countdowns include an additional synchronize function.
Sailing Race Starts is the latest development of Dan Zwerg's proven start system. Dan Zwerg created the sounds and created the program to play the sounds. He is the Director of Technology and coaches sailing at St. Stanislaus College. His experience and passion for sailing in combination with his technology skills led him to put this project together.
You can use this app to start races, of course. Just connect your device to a loudspeaker system via wire or Bluetooth and you are all set. High school and college students can use an Android device and headphones to practice starts over and over. During an actual race, you can play a voice start on your boat synchronized to your race committee's sound signals. It will count down the time verbally, freeing up a crew member to do more important things. A race committee that is determined to produce sounds manually can use it as an accurate visual and audio timer with beeps at all the right points to remind you to get ready with the flags.
This is a premium app built by an avid sailor, sailing team coach, and race official. You will love it.

Absolutely fantastic! Sailing Race Starts is the best way for a race committee to run sailing races. The horn signals are crisp and perfectly timed. It is also the best way for sailors to practice their starts--Just put your phone in a waterproof pouch and put it in the pocket of your life jacket and go for it. My favorite feature is that you can hook it up to the sound system of your boat using a wire or Bluetooth and then press the synchronize button when you hear the race committee's signals. You can then listen to a voice counting down to the start. For race committees who need a little training, Sailing Race Starts provides prompts along the way about when to raise and lower flags. For that matter, photos of all the race signal flags are provided along with the details about how they are used. The app is very intuitive. You will master it quickly.
