3-2-1-Sail FAQs

What happens if I receive a phone call during a race start?

The timer will continue, but you won't be able to see the 3-2-1-sail time display nor hear the audible countdown, so you may miss a starting signal.  Once the call has completed, the timer will continue.  The time will have been updated during the call, so will still be accurate.  Either divert all calls to voice mail or use an iPod touch or iPad to avoid the issue.

What happens if my device goes to sleep?

During the countdown to the race start, the sleep function of your device is suppressed, so it will not go to sleep during the critical phase of the sequence.  Once the race has started, the device will go to sleep after the normal period of inactivity.
