RaceDesigner

RaceDesigner is the tool designed to set precise courses. It can be used with robotic marks but as well with classical marks to get a precise course.

Features:

  • orientation of the map with wind
  • wind shift – whole course re-orientation
  • possibility of placement of reference pins
  • dragging buoy on the map
  • moving buoys by setting distances and angles compared to other references (buoys-pins)
  • quick steps up-wind, down-wind, right or left
  • drawing of multiple courses
  • display your own position
  • ruler for quick measures of distances and angles
  • wind direction & intensity information
