      I’ve done a few mods to the handicap sailing timer.

      As we tend to forget to turn off the timer after a race has started, I have programmed a TTGO T-Display Arduino to turn off the speaker when the maximum handicap for the race is met.

      Prior to starting the next race, the new handicap is enterred by using the 5 second inrement/decrement buttons and then press start. When the handicap is reached, the speaker is turned off.

      What could possibly go wrong with this over engineerd solution?

      Very nice Ron, that should fix the over runs quite nicely.

      Thank you Mike and Bodge.

      I’m looking forward to testing it out on Tuesday.

      And it did work really well. It is surprising how great a distraction turning off the timer can be if you are the one doing it in the vital seconds after the start. Well done Ron.
