Accessing the online entry/SIMS system for the 1st time
To enter selected events in 2017, AHCA members can register online through the Australian Sailing/ Sports TG system SIMS - Sailing Information Management System.
This system is the same online entry system that the AHCA used for the last two years, so if you competed in an AHCA event in 2015 or 2016, many of your details will already be recorded. Instructions on how to use the SIMS system is contained on this page.
If you already know how to use the system, you may proceed to the calendar page and hit 'register'.
To avoid frustration, please read the information below before attempting to register for an AHCA event. You will only need to follow these steps the first time that you register for an event via SIMS.
If you are a non-sailing member of the AHCA, you do NOT have to follow this process - it is only for people who need to register to sail at an event and complete online entry.
One inportant thing to remember with the SIMS system - your username is your email address, not your AS number.
Registering online for your first event in 2017
- Click on the REGISTER link in the E-Cal page on our website for the event you wish to enter.
- If you are entering a regatta for the first time using this system, select - "I am registering for the first time or do not not my details' and follow the instructions.
- If you know your username and password, select - "I know my Username (email address) and Password" and proceed.
- If you used this system last year, but cannot remember your password, select - "I have an AS Number but I need to set my Password" and enter your email address. (see Step 1 on attached document)You will receive an email with all usernames that are assigned to that email address and a link to reset the password. (Step 2 on attached document)(Please make sure that you have allowed incoming email from sportstg.com, and check your junk mail folder.)
Please Note: This will only be successful if the email address entered is already in the database. So if you do not receive an email from Sports TG, and have multiple emails, try another email address.
Click on the link to set a password (Step 3 on attached document)
Your password must be at least 6 characters long, and must include upper and lower case characters, and at least 1 number.
Return to online entry page and select your name from the dropdown box.
Enter the regatta as per normal. The SIMS system will populate fields from your AS membership details - ie, name, address etc. If any of the details are incorrect, you may change them as you proceed through the registration form.
The next time you enter an event, the system will remember you and you simply select your name from the drop-down box
PAYMENTS - Please note that the default payment option is by credit card. Fees will be applied - these fees are not remitted to the AHCA. You can also pay by direct bank deposit (details in the online entry).
