    zappe - first THANK YOU very much for all the time/effort you have put into this app. Its brilliant and a marvellous step forward for Sailonline.

    Second, sorry to say but I appear to have encountered a problem when I tried to reload the app/log back into it.

    CORRECTION & APOLOGIES: there is no error. My "problem" was because I was not registered in the race. I am leaving the images in case folks want to see what it looks like :-)




    After my initial look, I used the menu option to exit.

    When I decided to revisit the race I had looked at this is what happened/what I did:

    1. Selected icon from favourite apps (where I stored it:



    2. Found that I seemed to be still logged in:



    3. Tapped on Go to Race but got this error message:




    Please let me know what I may have done wrong, and/or what I need to do so that in future I can log out of the application and re-login as/when I choose.

    I am using an HTC One SV and because of rubbish battery life like to reduce the number of constantly running apps.

    Thanks!
