Hi all, old time user from version 1, but I haven’t scored an event in a long while. Does anyone have an ORC ratings file and regatta file using the 6 different ratings and the three windspeeds that ORC is using in my little bit of water. Back in the day, I would have built a csv file with the boat class and then a dpn or base rating and three or 4 windspeed ratings. Consequently, I would have 6 csv files for the the ORC ratings. Boat class now looks like a branding device because each boat could be customized and have a unique measurement certificate. So, I guess you build the database around a boats sail number? Again, back in the day… I usually failed at getting a scorekeeper to remember to enter the wind speed for each race so that the proper rating was used… These ORC tables are so complicated and the numbers are simply arcane that you won’t remember any boats number and catch an error until its too late.
EG Triple All Purpose (Low Medium, and High) and the next rating table is Triple W/L again with (Low Medium and High)
I wonder if it is user friendly for the PRO to just tell the scorekeeper which single number ratings file to use that race or evening rather then setting all of the selection factors to pull the proper rating from a clubs database. Does this generation of sailwave have new features that make this scoring situation sensible?
