The system for administration of a regatta have three actors, working together in a simple 1-2-3 guide

1. Organizer

Typical a identified (login) sailing club, who create the event and make it accessible for participants and followers.

This is a specialized and skilled activity without general public interest. The organizer will specify fee, extra services, documents, schedule, results and everything used to manage a regatta for organizer and sailors.

2. Participant

Typical a identified (login) boat owner, who enters the regatta by completing entry information about boat and crew based upon the participant profile.

This is a common public activity, in general the same as in every regatta entry system, but you have to be logged in and have a created profile used for all other regatta entries. So it diverges from other common entries, which is handled by anonymous sailors who just fill in a form. 

3. Follower

Typical a unidentified (no-login) spectator, the press or any reader.

They can find information about organizing club, participants, time schedule, results, protests, bulletin board. All information is show on a real-time basis, accessible by followers as soon as the organizer or participant has entered the information. There is search possibilities to find regattas and boat types and class information.
