The Project

The project explores ways that cloud computing can benefit the complex and diverse world of sailing events.  The arena is challenging – is there any other sport that has so many ways to find so many winners? So there is ample scope for innovation: competitor management, results publication, event entry and safety are just some of the areas where there is potential for ingenious development.

Topics in this blog’s menu outline the project’s progress. Year 1 concentrated on the development of key features: the competitor database, on-the-water results processing, the interface with Sailwave, web-based results publication. Year 2 introduced a configurable event website, online entry,  improved competitor communication, much fine-tuning and expansion into events further afield. Year 3 is about to begin!
