Hi Development Team,

If at all possible could the numbers on the top right of the map be made a bit LARGER. (TWS@deg and distace@angle)

See attachment.

From the "over 50" sailors, we appreciate your efforts,

Thank you,
Antonio (zero)
Alternatively, if the info that is associated with the cursor position could be displayed in the navigational panel under the Steer tab, it would be more readable.
None so blind
The VMG/BS numbers in the steer tab, could do with being a bit bigger to.Hard to define 5's,6's and 8's when your getting old!!! :-)

The only thing is you cant use steering with it to get to best VMG!!also the numbers disappear in top right of screen.Still well found for other things:-)
Just found that my laptop has a magnifier, that works whilst steering and can see all numbers on screen!!

KiaKaha - where did you find your laptop magnifier? I have just experimented with the one I downloaded and found, as you did, that it doesn't help with steering!!
Start/ search - magnifier... It takes abit to work it out but its ok!!!
StartMenu->All Programs->Accessories->Accessibility->Magnifier is the Windows built in one - but very rudimentary...

I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__
It would be so much easier if the numbers were made bigger!!!

This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
