Re: StartLine Sailing Racing Android App

Kind of agree with both Brian and Overbored. Is this like talking on your cellphone while you're driving? Whether I'm headed to Bermuda or 'round the buoys, if I'm looking at a screen instead of the boats around me any time within three minutes of the start, I'm likely to hit something expensive. If I have crew to tell me what the screen is showing, they could just as easily be sighting the line and warning me about other boats hidden by the jib at the same time. Oh, and think about buying an ad. (Bet the guys on SA aren't so polite.)
