Free Sailing Race Results Software

The Race Results System is a free and simple to use MS-DOS program for calculating the results of a dinghy sailing race using the RYA Portsmouth Yardstick (PY) handicap scheme.

The program can be run on most versions of Windows including:
Windows 10/8 (via DOSBox), Windows 7 (via DOSBox/Virtual PC), Windows XP / Vista / 2000 / NT / ME / 98 / 95 / 3.1, IBM OS/2 or any system capable of running MS-DOS programs.

Windows 8: please download the DOSBox emulator first.

Windows 7: requires DOSBox or Microsoft's Virtual PC software.

Design Notes:

All race timing is now worked out from 'time of day' to minimise errors. The software does not use an elapsed timer: instead this is calculated from the time each competitor finishes and the time the race started.

The program is designed to calculate the results for a single race.
For compiling series results Sailwave is recommended.
