Here are the instructions we give new scorekeepers.  We still collect the
data on paper and have only a couple of scorers each year who actually
access Sailwave.  We are also using 1.57.

hold a file from a previous series say that with a new name, clear the old
race results, and use that new file for the new series.

2. Click File plus Save Series as the new series name
3. Click Edit plus Clear Results for All Races
4. Click Yes
5. Click Yes
6. Right click in the column for the first race
7. Select the details tab and change the race name as appropriate
8. Repeat steps six and seven for all races
9. click Edit plus Series Properties
10. Change the name of the series
11. Click File plus Save series

first race.

Subject: [sailwave] Documentation - any available for ROs? If not, I'm about
to start some...!
Hi all,
I've been asked to put together some documentation for our ROs, so
that they can start using Sailwave.
Has anyone done any documentation for Sailwave yet?  (Apart from the
If not, I'm happy to turn this into a proper help/documentation
project for the system for general use in the Sailwave community.
I'm intending to write it in DocBook, so we can generate HTML,
HTMLHELP, and PDF versions.
I'll be basing it on 1.57, as this is what we're using at our club.
