Race replays: 1st day great, but where’s 2nd day?

I’m trying to catch up with the series before Cowes. The Sydney and San Francisco first day replays are great. However, I don’t see how to find the second days of racing for those cities.

Hi,

When watching the race on replay, tap on the video and select races. You can then choose which race to watch, from Day 1 and Day 2.

Hope that helps,

Great app, needs some polish.

The actual viewing experience is nice, with multicam views and telemetry. I found myself viewing the FB stream on my TV through a connected MacBook, while using this app on an iPad in umpire view and and iPhone showing telemetry - usually split view with AUS & JPN, but changed telemetry to whichever boat was on the host broadcast a few times.

Some minor quibbles follow.

The Rolex countdown timer has been wrong until version 1.0.4, and there’s not enough localized information about when the live-streams will begin. The website’s watch page had confusing/conflicting information for most of the week. For Sydney Day 1, finally in version 1.0.4 of the app, there was an accurate countdown timer, but no start time in my time zone (or at all). Ever since the coverage of Day 1 ended and the replay became available, there is no countdown to Day 2 or start time, just the current time in Sydney and in my time zone in the Rolex banner on the bottom. This has made it difficult to plan our local club’s viewing party (Severn Sailing Association in Annapolis, MD, USA).

On my iPhone XS Max, the video could not be zoomed to full the whole screen, and the home bar remained visible during the entire video (live and replay).

As there’s no Apple TV app - why!? - one would think the Airplay experience would have been good. Sadly not. Since the app doesn’t support Airplaying the video, I had to resort to Airplay screen mirroring. Airplay screen mirroring to an LG OLED paired with an Apple TV 4K required me to manually zoom horizontally and vertically. The home bar was still visible at the bottom unless I zoomed in to remove that part of the video from the screen. App support for Airplay should fix this.

I understand that smooth live-streaming to a large audience and drone live-streaming caps dictated a 720p live-stream. It would be nice for replays to be shown at up to 4K.

It would be nice for app users to be able to temporarily zoom and pan the umpire view ourselves; after a few seconds of no pan/zoom activity, it could go back to whatever pan/zoom the umpires have selected.

Thanks for a great experience so far!

Hi,

Thanks for posting a detailed review. We are reviewing all the feedback from the Sydney Event and we will definitely look at all of your comments.

Casting problems

Spotty operation when casting to TV . Sometimes I can cast to AppleTV and sometimes no. Option just not there and very frustrating.

Developer Response ,

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback. Support for casting (Chromecast and AppleTV) is not currently supported in the App. You can mirror your screen (for example, using Airplay on iOS), however the App does not have control over performance.

We know that casting is important, and we are looking at new features for the future.

We hope you continue to follow SailGP,

Thanks
