Update 10-03-2010
Received an Email from Brass about this app:

Dear Jos, I just saw this on SA:
It was pointed out to me by a friend last night that the US Sailing Rules app has some incorrect definitions under 'postponements': AP over A and AP over N the defs are wrong. The app is great how it hyperlinks words to other pages. My bro wants his $5.99 back. I'll buy it when it gets fixed.

If you want to go to the forum: Go here
I wonder what on earth the Americans think AP over N means?
Regards, Brass
Can anybody tell me what the app says AP over A and AP over N means?


  1. A very nice and useful application. I like the links in the text to the mentioned rules and definitions. I like the search function. I hope USSailing will add the appendices in the near future.

  2. The flag label/(incorrect postponement) text issue has been resolved as of the 1.012 update.
