Information about your crew members is recorded on the on-line version of the Crew List available at Yacht Scoring available in the Owners’ Corner; please ensure that emergency contacts for all crew members is provided. The Crew List is a very important document in case of emergency; any last minute changes are to be recorded electronically on the crew list.
YachtScoring was updated in 2013 to collect Emergency Contact information for the competitors.
First, on the Boat Information side, a new field was added for “Boat Emergency Phone” which is intended for the owners and captains to add their Sat or cell phone numbers in case the Coast Guard or anyone else needs to get in touch with the boat during the race.
On the Crew side… There was for a while a single field for “Emergency Contact Information” which was pretty generic in content. It was eliminated and replaced with 4 individual fields in order to be more specific about the information we needed to be collected. The new fields are:
Emergency Contact Name
Emergency Contact Phone
Emergency Contact Mobile
Emergency Contact Email
These field have already been added to the Crew List Report in the Administration side of the event.
While making these changes, YachtScoring has added a new “Crew’s Corner” to the event’s public side. This area will allow for individual Crews, once added by the Owners to their crew list, to login and update their own information and Emergency Contact.
From an Owner’s perspective, this eliminates their need to track and complete all of each crew’s information. They need only to enter the Crew’s Name and Email address. The individual crew can then return to the site, log into their record thru the “Crew’s Corner” and complete/update their own information.
