Now I know where I stand. I will have to do some experiments. The
alternative is to use spreadsheets to handle the qualifying races, and
import the results into sw for the finals. I hope to avoid having to
Both are variations of Flights systems
The Topper example is boats stay in the same group/fleet for the
whole regatta and rotate who they
sail against in each start. They use this for both weekend events &
and week-long Nationals with
great success (so I am told)
As far as I am aware, Colin has yet to deal with Addendum C version
of flights i.e Qualification &
Finals with re-allocation of flights within user defined criteria.
Also within Q & F, there can be variations to series scoring where
all races (Qual and Finals) count
for the series or the Finals is a totally separate series with some
recognition of Qualification
performance eg carry forward position in Qual as a non-discardable
'race 1' Finals result.
If you look at all the recent postings/thread from Jan [jv@c...]-
Qualification and finals,
he has a similar problem with some suggestions how to deal with it,
but not sure if he has achieved
an acceptable solution.
If you &/or Jan get SW to work for Qualifications & Finals, I am
sure Colin & the rest of us will
value your feedback

Subject: [sailwave] How exactly do I set up flights?
I've read all of the posts I can find on flights, and Addendum C of
ISAF Appendix LE, but I'm still confused
According to Addendum C, boats are reassigned to fleets (=flights?)
after each day of racing.
However, as I understand the example (the topper example) and Colin's
description of flights in response to a question here, boats remain
assigned to the same flight during qualifying races, and each flight
race against every other flight.
We are intending to use 'Flights' for the GP14 Nationals in August,
using the 'reassign to flight/fleet every day' method as per Addendum
Could someone enlighten me as to:
a) which of the two (or both) is the flight system?
b) how to implement the addendum c version in SW?
Thanks in advance,
Confused of Poole (Ian)
