Manual hand timing

In all cases hand timing is compulsory.

Manual hand timing is used as a backup to the primary electronic timing system.

Manual (Hand) Timing, completely separate and independent of the Electronic Timing, must be used for all competitions listed in the FIS calendar. Stopwatches or and-held battery operated timers that are installed at both the start and the finish and capable of expressing time of day times to 1/10th (0.1) or 1/100th (0.01) precision qualify as proper hand timing devices.

They must be synchronized prior to the start of each run, preferably with the same Time-of-Day as System A and System B. Printed records, either automatic or handwritten of recorded hand times must be immediately available at the start and at the finish.

Stopwatches, with or without printers, should be synchronised to the time of day and used at the start and at the finish.

A complete list of hand times recorded at the start and the finish must be given to the Chief of Scoring at the end of each run, or immediately upon request.

Following the start of each forerunner and each competitor the start hand time will be communicated to the operator of the System B (Backup) and recorded.

After each forerunner and each competitor crosses the finish line, the hand time at the finish point will also be communicated and the net time will be calculated and recorded for both System B (Backup) and hand timing using the Hand Timing Protocol.

An on-going recording and calculation process will continue for the entire event.
