Features for sailing teams and boat crews
We are using the app to run a junior sailing club team. The team is further subdivided into boat crews, 2 kids in each boat. And the team doesn't sail against another team, the boats compete between themselves within the team instead. It would be too tedious and impractical to set up a team for each crew, especially since all crews are coached and supported by the same group of people. It would be nice if the app could adapt to that, e.g.:
- instead of specifying the opposing team - set the race number etc,
- allow grouping of team members into crews, to see if there are any incomplete crews (because those can't sail and need substitution arrangements).

we are also using TS for a sailing team and have recommended to our entire league. The Features are great. Our "Games" (regattas) are always against 10+ other teams not just one. We have 10-15 races (events per day) with 2 players per boat. Would be great to see a feature in CoachStuff to record finishes for our players. This and the other features mentioned could also be useful for: go-cart racing, track, golf, or any other sport where there is one (our team) against many or a tournament.
I'm managing a college team currently and have several boats with up to 9 person crews. I need to find a way to fill multiple boats for the same event. I also like the idea of having some way of showing multiple races along with placement and overall score.
