Keith (and others),
In the meantime, would an external tool which scans all series files
and merges all their competitors into a 'master' series be of use?
I could knock something like that up pretty quickly.
The mode of operation would be something like:
1. Select series to process (or select directories/folders in which
series are located).
2. Select target series.
3. Program scans all selected series, producing a master list of all
competitors in the series, and placing this in the target series.
4. Could have a warning if the target series has been scored.
Would have to make the test for uniqueness of a competitor just
class/sailno, or class/sailno/helm (or selectable?).
Colin - this would be easier to process if the series data was in
XML format - but not a problem with the current format. Any
progress on XML output? Do you have a schema for a series? I'd be
happy to collaborate on the specification/coding.

Our first three series ended this weekend. Scoring as usual was no
problem, but it took hours to publish final results as each series
had to be analysed for 'races to qualify' and rescored manually. Is
the 'races to qualify' gizmo in Sailwave any nearer to being
Secondly, any further development on the single database for all
competitors. I know Sailwave can import competitors from another
file, but trying to find Joe Bloggs in his Mirror when you can't
remember which race (file) he's in is a real chore. Multiply that by
several newcomers to each race and it becomes tedious. One database
hooked into the sail number wizard would streamline Sailwave
