Scoring a race that lasts more than a day (or finishes after midnight).

Just a reminder, that if you're planning a distance race, or an overnight regatta that will end after midnight for PHRF or other handicap classes, be sure to select the option: "Distance Race: Races last more than a day" under Regatta Scoring Class/Fleet Information.

Otherwise, the scoring system will not recognize that a day has past, and as a result, the entrants may be scored with a negative elapsed time. By selecting this option, the system automatically adds the "finish date" option to the online scoring console and records the days that have past as a 1+HH:MM:SS, as below.
