Reschedule start (when the app start recording) has nothing to do with the actual start of the race. We suggest to start recording at least five min prior to the start so the pre-start maneuverings are recorded. Also, there is no need to stop and re-start the app between the races, let it run.
It is important that the app is recording during the actual race start when the boat crosses the line. All the analytics in OD and PHRF race start from the point actual start time of the division – time and the boat crossing the line – distance.
The pursuit race analytics time and distance starts from the point of the boat crossing the start line (not from the division start time). The start line is restricted in most pursuit races. If your boat crossed the start line prematurely, you will have incorrectly calculated first leg of the race.
