StartLine Sailing Racing Android App

For all the beer can racers out there here is an app that works.

Press Release
StartLine Sailing Racing Application for Android.

Arrive at the Starting Line on time at speed then continue around the race course with the Waypoint display.

StartLine by L-36.com was created out of the desire for a better race start and my frustration with the solutions that were available. StartLine uses the concept of Target Speed (measured and entered during the prestart) to translate distance to the starting line to time, which is what everyone really wants to see. By using target speed the readings are still valid even if you do a loop to kill time and are heading away from the line.

StartLine was developed on the race course with an emphasis placed on low probability of error through simple easy to see and understand menus. Each display has a function and is not cluttered with other tasks.

Large high contrast displays make the StartLine easy to read under adverse lighting conditions.

Enter the starting time and if the race committee uses GPS time (which most do), there is no need to synchronize to any 5 minute gun, although the time is easily synchronized to any start sequence if required.

Ping the ends of the line then look at the distance and direction feedback to make sure it was done right.

Location readings are made more accurate by interpolation between GPS events and velocity correction of location. These combine to give extremely accurate readings of time to the line.

In addition there are eight starting strategies with a readout of the time to the selected start layline. This allows you to get in position minutes before the start so you do not have to kill time and speed at the last minute if you are early. This also gives you plenty of time to make corrections if you are late.

After the start, the waypoint display gives direction and time to the mark as well as boat speed and heading. Times take into account the course and compensate for the tacking or gybing required to get to the mark. The program allows multiple waypoints organized in multiple files in a very flexible format. Selection and editing or waypoint files are included in latest version.

For more information visit L-36.com and click on the StartLine tab

StartLine is available on Google Play. Search for “StartLine” (one word)

Re: StartLine Sailing Racing Android App

It is unlikely that you came across StartLine as I pulled it from the Android Market because of concern over liability of a sailing app. I am still developing it and it does a lot more than it did. A few people have it but that is it. Anyone interested can contact me by PM.
