ISAF have published information regarding the new XML regatta reporting data format.
The ISAF XML Regatta Reporting format (ISAF XRR) is an XML-schema defined by the International Sailing Federation to provide a universal standard for the transfer of results information. The format allows instant integration of results management systems with the ISAF results database.
The latest version, v1.3.1, includes improvements on reporting regatta results, the standardisation of dates and times throughout the reports and validation of the format.. The service allows the upload of racing results for fleet racing, match racing and team racing formats. It also provides a facility for the download of sailor biography information and basic regatta information.
Use of the ISAF XRR message service allows for rapid publication of regatta results enabling regatta management teams to automate some of their office procedures and ensuring the ISAF Sailor biographies are immediately updated with results at the end of a regatta.
Details of the ISAF XRR format and services can be found here
which includes technical specifications and details of the software required to make use of the service.
