RaceQs Race Replay: 2015 Glow Regatta

What is RaceQs?  From their website: The raceQs’ tracker app records sailing data with your phone and creates a 3D replay of your race online. The 3D replay will show your boat and any other boats who were recording in your area. Select anyone in the replay to learn from the top performers in your fleet.  

At the 2015 Glow, we provided all participants a free waterproof cell phone case and encouraged everyone to download the RaceQs app and record the race.   We also set up a public regatta broadcast and were provided a dedicated URL . Although we did not take advantage of the live broadcast feature, many of the racers enjoyed the race replay after dinner.   

Using the application is very simple!  All you have to do is remember to hit record.  If you are worried that you will forget, you can schedule it to record ahead of time.   After some previous issues with the Roll,Pitch, Yaw setting, we encouraged people to turn that to off.   After the race, Bruce Kitchen offered to set the lines, marks, and race start times.  

To learn about how to get the most out of RaceQs, you can read the Replay Your Races to Sail Smarter article from the most recent Scots N Water magazine.  Here is the link to that article: http://www.fssa.com/files/scots_59_5.pdf
