Club members who have duties as P.R.O or A.R.O should also make sure they are familiar (or remind themselves) how to run the races and how to record the results using the RMS.
The P.R.O User Manual can be downloaded here. Budworth_RaceControl_PRO_Manualv1.4
There is a QuickStart Guide: race system_pro_guide_slides
Pursuit Races: (Updated Nov 2014)
Start Timings: The RMS now includes a calculator! Start the PRO-PC in the OD Box, see the main window has a new button “Pursuit Race Info”. This enables you to set the “scratch class” and the race duration. It will then calculate the relative start timings for you for all Budworth classes.
These should be run with the Race system set to “Boat Start” and “Boat Finish”.Any sounds can be triggered using the “(Test) Klaxon” or “Test” Bell buttons on the Race Control window. You should still Open/Close SignIn. Record finish positions in the Results window in the normal way. Finish times are not needed.
There are also U-Tube training video’s available:
