Sailwave supports flights as an advanced feature, but to make it simpler for the normal user where flights are not used, they are not shown unless you enable them by ticking the box, in the Setup – User Interface – Appendix LE addendum C
Flights are stored for each competitor and each race.
There is also a Flights field which belongs to the competitor which is their current flight.
Flight allocation can be easily viewed by using
Flight allocation is normally done using the Tools – Flight assignments
Tooltips are available to assist you.
You can also use the Tools – Set competitor field to set flights
From version 2.25.5 onwards it is also possible to import flights from a csv file. This uses the File – Import results from csv file…
Typically you would have a csv something like this:-
You don’t have to use Sailno you can use anything that uniquely identifies the competitor which may be multiple columns
From version 2.8.3 entry of finish times within the sail number wizard have been changed to optimize the quick entry of data. Rules for entry in the other areas have not changed and are covered under the previous section.
Finishing times such as 123456 will get “:”‘s entered automatically so it becomes 12:34:56.
Finishing times entered in this format are checked and you get an error beep and prompted to re-enter if the hour > 23, minute > 59 or second > 59.
You don’t need to enter a leading 0 so 92345 becomes 09:23:45.
You don’t need to enter trailing seconds if it is an exact minute so 923 becomes 09:23:00.
You don’t need to enter trailing minutes for an exact hour so 9 becomes 09:00:00.
As of version 2.8.3, the completely numeric form of the elapsed time syntax is extended as described below. To force the standard interpretation (seconds) use a + prefix. The extended formats are converted by Sailwave into standard form and appear in the results as such. When doing this conversion a semicolon separator is assumed. Other standard formats are unaffected and can still be used.
The following constraints are applied, resulting in a single beep if broken:-
0 < ss < 60
0 < mm < 100 (no hours specified)
0 < mm < 60 (hours specified)
0 < hh < 100 (no days specified)
0 < hh < 24 (days specified)
Various operations require you to supply competitor field names in a textual form. For example when importing competitors via CSV files you need to tell Sailwave what is in each column by supplying the first non-blank line of the file as a comma separated list of field names.

Sailwave can import data from and export data to CSV files. CSV stands for comma separated values. The form of a CSV file is a line of data field names followed by lines of data:- Continue reading CSV file→
