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!!!

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
