Best app ever for Kite racing.. Thanks... Love it

It's a great app and easy to use. To me the best app for sailors. Very usefull. I even used the polar log function. It took a little time to find out but Nicholas just helps you quick with useful instructions. Name the file something like ED0B3289 (de name of the app on your watch without '.txt') and you're all set. Thanx Nicholas!

Is it possible to use the countdown timer without pinging the start line? Sometimes it's just not doable in a foiling vehicle.

Fixed - Version 3.3, click back button if on the screen that says set start A and it will skip direct to the race countdown Hack

Love it. Using it to track and run my beachcat. Recorded nicely, but my Garmin GPS on my watch (Fenix 5S Plus) doesn't seem to quite jibe with Google earth on the after plots. Elsewhere, Nicholas seems to have built something of a full fledged tactical sail/racing app into a Garmin quite effectively. Love it! Thanks a ton. ChuckC

Thanks, - as always, if you have any suggestions pass them too me. Next on my agenda, is to enable a polar plot on the watch face, that will appear at the end of the session as you exit.

Fantastic functionality, great support from developer - the most useful app for sail racing on a Garmin watch

I would not have purchased a Quatix 5, if I had not learned about this app! The app is proving to be very versatile and intuitive. It is a useful tool for quick assessment of boat position relative to marks/waypoints. Helps to determine position relative to laylines and whether one is on the favored tack or gybe relative to the waypoint. Updates seem to be coming fast and furious.
