RaceLeader is a bespoke application for managing Heads and Regattas. We are separate to BROE, which means data has to be exchanged between the two systems via exports and imports.

All data in RaceLeader is used for the sole purpose of organising and running competitions. This data is stored in a secure database, and served through encrypted TLS connections. We do not sell this data, nor do we pass it to any other parties. Basic information is exposed publicly for the purposes of the Draw and Results. Those with admin rights to RaceLeader can see more detailed information, but is restricted to the competition being administered.
