A Case Study

SailRacer has been working with the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) – the national governing body for sailing - for over four years, to provide a range of innovative solutions including squad applications and management programmes, PY handicap systems, online training tools, meteorology analysis, athlete performance analysis, comprehensive event websites, measurement and certification systems.

 

SailRacer also supports the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, which is the RYA's highest profile annual event and included on the ISAF Sailing World Cup tour. The 2010 event attracted over 935 entries, as the world of Olympic sailing descended on the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA).

SailRacer delivered the event website - including online entry, results and analysis, media interfaces, big screen link-up, information alerts, social media interfaces and more – which attracted over 50,000 unique online visitors from 130 nations. With such a diverse audience, we need to use tools to inform and engage users from around the world. For example, our alerts service – by email and SMS – sends out automated alerts to subscribers on a range of information. Subscribers to SMS Results Alerts can receive the top three finishers plus their nominated sailor. Data in email alerts is unlimited, so the complete results can be distributed. Alerts can also be used to alert when racing is about to start, particularly useful for attracting viewers to the live tracking. More events are also using alerts for a range of information, such as alerting parents when younger sailors are heading ashore – great for events where the sailors are sailing away from the host club, notifying protest times – useful for events where the venue is large, weather alerts and more.

Event Director for the 2010 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, David Campbell-James said, “SailRacer's ability to interpret our needs, identify solutions and opportunities and deliver are outstanding. Their professionalism in collaborating with all the key partners involved in projects has been a big asset, particularly in an event like Skandia Sail for Gold regatta.”

 

Supporting Sail for Gold, SailRacer provides online camper van booking for the WPNSA - www.wpnsa.org.uk/on-site-facilities/overnight-campervaning – an easy online tool which administers all bookings, sends out automated confirmation emails, collects and reconciles payment.

 

Your event does not need to be on the scale of Skandia Sail for Gold to benefit from SailRacer – we can provide support to all events whether small or large, national or international. Standard applications which can be set up in a matter of hours include:

Online Entry Systems - administering entries can be one of the most time consuming elements of organizing an event – from receiving and processing the entry through to banking the payment. SailRacer's platform provides a flexible entry system, using RYA standard forms, with automated email systems and payment reconciliation and easy email tools. The way we manage our systems means that the fees we charge to an event organizer are less than you would be charged yourself for setting up an online payment system, plus of course we remove the manual administration. The SailRacer system has processed over 30,000 online entries across more than 1,400 events, ranging from small local club opens to international events.

 

Online Booking Systems - do you want to provide an online booking system for your sailing courses or perhaps you have a fleet of boats you rent or charter? Our online booking system enables your potential customers to see availability and book in real time. You can be sure the booking is genuine and the payment processed. All platforms can be customised to your brand – ensuring consistency of “look” with your website and other publications.
