Description: Program is downloaded as a zipped file that is extracted to a user specified directory. It is highly recommended that the directions provided on the web site for installing be strictly adhered to. Once the files are unzipped the folder will contain a series of files including some .doc (Word) files with user instructions. The program is installed within Microsoft Excel and while the program has numerous features including features for round robins an team racing it is not as easy to use as some other programs. The added flexibility and features come with some added complexity.
The program handles low point scoring, bonus point scoring, high point and custom scoring and is in compliance with Appendix A of the Racing Rules of Sailing. Users should understand the provisions of Appendix A before using this or any other scoring program. The program provides for a great deal of flexibility in formatting output, including html files. Only one design scoring has been evaluated. None of the handicap scoring routines have been evaluated at this time.
