TackTracker's race analysis generates a wealth of useful information and the Race Reports license activates TackTracker's rich set of reports for extracting and presenting this information in tabular form.
Race Reports are available for the TackTracker application for PC and Mac (download here). The reports may be generated in HTML, XML or CSV formats.
Some reports generate handicap results - these need to be used in conjunction with the Club Regatta license, which provides for handicapping.
These reports present the elapsed times and places for each boat overall and for each leg rounding. The Handicap variant shows corrected places for each leg as well as overall scratch and corrected times and places.
The Leg Times report presents the elapsed leg times for each boat at each leg rounding.
The Relative Leg Times report presents the leg times for each competitor relative to the best performing boat for the leg. You can see at a glance where times were gained and lost.
This report shows where places were won and lost during the race, beginning with a snapshot 30 seconds after the start and updated for each leg of the course. You can see at a glance which legs cost or won you the most places. The handicap variant uses corrected places rather than scratch places.
This report shows relative leg times compared with the winning boat. You can see at a glance which legs cost or won you the most time. The handicap variant uses corrected times rather than scratch times.
The Legs Summary report presents the same information you see in the TackTracker Legs table in a printable report. A separate table is produced for each leg of the course, summarizing each competitors leg distance, times, deviations, speeds and VMG. If this is a handicap race, the report also shows the adjusted times for each leg.
The Tacks Summary report presents the same information you see in the TackTracker Tacks table in a printable report. A separate table is produced for each competitor, listing all tacks throughout the course together with distances, times, bearings and speeds.
If your competitors are certified by the ORC, and you have a Club Regatta license, you can not only download handicap data directly into TackTracker, but with this report you can also analyse your results against ORC predicted speed data across the range of wind speeds and bearings.
To put it simply, compare your performances against the ORC prediction and find out where you exceed or fall short of your rated speed.
