Re: StartLine Sailing Racing Android App

This seems to to be a great app to get a perfect start every time assuming that there are no other boats on the starting line at the same time as you. don't see how this is going to help you to get the pin position in a fleet of guys that know how to start and don't really play fair. timing the start is only a small fraction of the skills needed to get a good start. does the APP come with nerves of steel or a big bag of money so you don't have to worry about sticking your boat in there with the big guys that do have big bags of money.
If you can't sail and get a good start then either go practice or sit home on your Android and pretend to race on a video game.
It is called Sailboat racing not Android Racing.
when I go sailing I leave the computers at home.
