SailGrib RS helps you to take better regatta starts. The application includes a regatta stopwatch, calculates the distance to the line, the time to burn until the start and the best side of the line*. Time to burn: represents the difference between the time to the start and the time needed to reach the line if the boat keeps its instantaneous speed and course. A negative Burning Time indicates that the boat is ahead and will cross the line before the start. The time to burn is not displayed if the boat moves away from the line.
(*) Premium option: 1 month €1.99, 1 year €6.99, final €15.99
Display of the favourable side of the line, bow offset.

Basical version is free but useless without any in-app purchase. The pro version has basical settings to process NMEA and AIS datas and allows you to do much more ! iRegatta also provides numerous statistics and draw polar curves.
Needs NMEA data from boat tools in order to have all features available.
There is a guidebook on the developer website.

- Mainsail surface
- Jib surface
- Symetrical spinnaker surface (not required)
