    Hi ij. I like the new improvements and the zoom is a bit better already with zoom in on remaining course.

    Another suggestion which is just a small aside. Even though we usually sail in open sea there are occasions when I would like to see a satellite image of the area (or the small island where I just took a BBQ). Under Helpful Links in the Misc tab a link to the Bing map could go straight to the location of my boat by parsing in the coordinates. E.g. this shows the start in Orakei for the next race: https://www.bing.com/maps?cp=-36.843496~174.81866&lvl=15&style=h&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027

    It's an easy way to add something visual at no server cost.

    Another useful link would go to the current weather map on Windy. Again we can parse in the current coordinates of the boat. E.g. https://www.windy.com/?gfs,52.656,-13.206,6,i:pressure,d:picker

    For the SOLers that's a quick way to compare different weather models etc..

    @Renegade You mentioned Baikal Lake in the thread about Titicaca. There is an annual iceboat race on Baikal, which could be used as the basis for a SOL race. All we would need is polars for an iceboat. Ice boats can go very fast, so it would probably be fun. What do you think? See: https://www.idniyra.org/2019/10/13/dn-sailing-on-lake-baikal-in-march-2020/

    I found info about iceboat polars in "Physics of Sailing: https://tinyurl.com/y9nfzjvd

    Isla del Sol in Titicaca has a very irregular shape. With properly placed waypoints it could make for a varied sprint race, or a timed race. Winds are supposedly very variable on the lake there. Looking forward to it.

    Baikal lake is one I was also working on. And another one that could be fun is Great Bear Lake In NW territories Canada.

    As for Titicaca there is a narrow passage to the SouthEast part of the lake, where there are several small islands. So, it could be made into a longer race, but I wasn't sure if that narrow passage is feasible to include. Can be edited of course :-)

    @Bimmer @Renegade I understand that real race proposal are considered first. Races on lakes can always be considered when there is nothing else. Openseamaps shows several shallow areas in Titicaca. The deepest point is supposedly in the NortEast near Isla Soto (2nd waypoint in my KLM) at 281 meters. See https://www.britannica.com/place/Lake-Titicaca

    There is probably a long list with race proposals already. But anyway, I think some races on the most famous big navigable lakes in the world would be interesting. Here is my first one. Hope I did it right with the KMZ file. Can be edited where needed, of course.

    Hi Kroppyer,

    Just some small suggestions that may have been made already.

    1) When opening the html5 client it starts in max zoomed out position that shows the entire race. On longer races like the current Auckland to Fiji it takes me about 10 to 15 clicks on the "+" button to zoom in to detailed view that shows me the next 6 to 12 hours of racing. If there is space for it another button that instantly takes me to that deeper zoom with just one click would be useful.

    2) In the steer tab on the right side I would rather see the Delayed commands (DC) displayed directly underneath the boxes where a new course can be set. It's so easy to forget that some DC are still set. The polar graph that is now visible under the course commands could be toggled with a "Show/Hide"button. And that would free up the 2nd tab, which is now devoted to the DC.

    That's it for now. I think the new client is really good already. Couldn't spot any bugs.
