The 1,111 sailors from 59 nations arose this morning, greeted by sunshine and clear blue skies. The one problem, the early morning breeze that has been evident over the opening two days of racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères was absent.
As sailors trickled in to rig their boats on the second day of racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères they were greeted with flags fluttering in a beautiful breeze that will whet their sailing appetite.
The ISAF XML Regatta Reporting format (ISAF XRR) is an XML schema
defined by the International Sailing Federation; the world governing
body for the sport of sailing. It provides a universal standard for the
transfer of information relating to sailing events, including but not
limited to results, calendar and entry information.
Use the links in the menu above to navigate between the pages of
this section of the ISAF website.
If you require further information that is not currently included
or have comment(s) or suggestion(s) on the development of the project
and/or its online presence then please use the following link to access
the contact page for the ISAF technical department.
The Schema pages provide access to the
various development versions of the schema document and links to
examples that can be followed to assist in development of 3rd party
software to use XRR.
The Technical Specification pages provide
detail on the content of the schema documents including the source and
type of the information for a number of the data fields and how the XML
entities relate to one another.
The Data Transfer pages describe the XRR
message service in terms of the ISAF implementation and the methods
available for interacting with XRR with 3rd party software.
The Software Packages pages provide a
list of 3rd party software implementations which are compatible with
the data transfer procedures implemented on the ISAF servers. Links are
provided where available.
If you would like to nominate a software package for inclusion in our lists please contact the ISAF secretariat on the link above to register your interest and to organise an example implementation for testing against the XRR service.
The File Import page is a manual upload
tool that can be used to test XRR documents for correctness. It also
provides an upload tool for the particular case of a live Event where
an automated tool is unavailable.
