Sailboat Race Starter and Regatta Timer

James Eskew
--- Half price for a limited time!! ---

Sailboat Race Starter is an ISAF Countdown Timer for racing sailboats. It is the #1 sailing app in the App Store and the best selling racing timer in over 30 countries!

- Includes sync feature which allows you to calibrate your time with the race committee if you miss the warning signal.

- Audible alerts and vibration as timer approaches race start.

- Mark both ends of the start line using integrated GPS and the app will determine how far away from the line you are, and how long it will take to get there. The FIRST and ONLY app in the App Store to offer this feature.

- Screen stays alive and will not go to sleep during start sequence, unlike similar copycat apps.

- BIG display is designed to help you find information at a glance in bright sunlight.


- Time the race after start sequence, by popular request!
