Club administrators can manage classes from the Manage Classes page for their club or a special event within their club.
A class is a collection of boats, members, calendar events and results. A class may contain boats of one or more boat classes.
For example, you may create a class called "Fast Asymmetric Class" which may contain boats of boat class "RS 800", "International 14", "49er", all of which are fast asymmetric boats. Another example might be a class that contains boats of a single boat class. For example, "Mirror Class", which would contain mirror dinghies.
A class can be created at a club level or within a special event. Classes created at club level can be used for regular club activity. Special events can be created within a club and classes can be added to them also.
For example, you might have a class called "RS800 Class" at club level to hold all your regular club activity for that collection of boats. In addition, you may create a special event called "RS Open Event" to contain information related to a specific open event. Within that special event you may also have a class called "RS800 Class" to hold activity for the RS 800 Class specifically for that RS Open event. This class will likely contain boats from different clubs.
Club adminstrators can manage classes in their club or their club's special events from the Class Management Dashboard and Special Event Management Dashboard found in their Club Administrator Tools.
From the Manage Classes page you can add members to a class for crew matching, define boats within a class and associate them with class members. You can also create a new series of races for a class, add races to it and score it.
You can add classes to your club or special event by clicking on the add class command ( add class).
