There are at least two reasons to use I-Sail:
to get more Fairness and Transparency in Sailing
to enjoy and analyse Races afterwards.
Foto finishes, hawk eyes, video goal judges, rfid tags and gps tracking are just some of the techniques used to analyse and judge results in sports.
For sailing regattas racing committees especially judge the starting and finish lines. During the Race there are no referents to take measures. Sailors themselve have to protest against other participants when appropriate. Afterwards racing committees have no means to analyses races anymore.
To get more fairness and transparancy in this sport, participants can now use gps tracking from I-Sail.
This will help to get objective data to judge a protest properly. It will also help to analyze if participants sailed the proper courses and took their penalties if necessary.
This is the aim of I-Sail to get more fairness and transparency.
Use the app for tracking your regatta, training or recreational day sailing and analyze on your PC, or upload the data to share with others. No need for any additional hardware other than your smart phone! Push your sailing skills to a higher level. Tracking has never been this easy!
