Looking for feedback (beta testers) on a great free Android Dinghy race control app. 

Very kindly developed for the sailing community by Robbie at Lakeside Sailing Club, 

Race count down, automatic timings, instant results compatible with Sailwave. I have worked with Robbie to add features such as Rolling starts, Sailwave Import, Export , External relays for signal horns. Now looking for feedback from the wider community.

I've downloaded the updated DSRC v1.5 App.

Looks like a slick operation.

I'd like to use it for a small keelboat pursuit start race that I will be running.

Our pursuit races work like this:
  1. Each boat is allocated a handicap number in whole minutes
  2. Boats start after their handicap start time, being the starting time plus their handicap number.
  3. Places are straight out finishing order.
As I understand it, the appropriate implementation for DSRC is:
  1. Set up fleet as a single class, with all the same 'PY'.
  2. Select all competitors who come to the starting area.
  3. Run race start countdown to the zero starting time
  4. Record race finishers in order.
  5. This should produce a finishing result in finishing order.
  6. Publish results.
Are there any better/suggested work-arounds?
