Welcome to sailregattas.com, the new way to help you save time and maximize the joy of competitive sailing.
Sailregattas.com was launched in August 2003 to enable sailors to securely enter regattas on-line and manage their regatta entries, personal information, boat information, and crew information.
It also provides a place where yacht clubs and sailing associations can publish their regattas and accept on-line enties. Sailregattas.com promises to simplify the frustrating and time-consuming task of managing regatta entries for both sailors and regatta sponsors.
Sailregattas.com is based on technology developed for Annapolis Yacht Club in Annapolis, Maryland by Gebhardt and Associates, a technology consulting company headed by John C. Gebhardt, an active racing skipper with over 30 years of software development, racing, and race management experience .
The tecnology is being used to manage hundreds of entries in AYC's active summer sailing schedule. They, like many yacht clubs use JavaScore to score their regattas on the water. They download entries directly to the latest version of JavaScore and upload results and race news directly to race.annapolisyc.org from the water via a mobile phone Internet connection so competitors and everyone else can see what is happening, as it happens.
Now, at sailregattas.com, every yacht club can take advantage of this revolutionary technology to dramatically simplify regatta management chores and increase regatta participation, allowing precious volunteer resources to be better spent improving the racing experience for competitors.
To register on the site, just click on the register link at the top, left of the page. Supply the information requested and login. Then click on the "My Info" tab and fill out additional information. The information you supply will be used to automatically fill in entry forms as you enter regattas in the future. Don't worry, we won't sell, rent, or otherwise provide you information to third parties other than the yacht clubs that host the regattas you enter and the partners from which you buy stuff offered for sale (coming soon) on sailregattas.com.
Sail fast and often. Welcome aboard!
