1. Please consider using “Import Marks from GPX file” function under “Create Mark” menu.
You’ll need to import marks for each event separately, though. This is because some marks could change their location slightly due to current and wind. Thus, we need separate copies of marks for each day. And a “template” to create them from. We’ve decided against adding another notion and just use GPX files as templates.
You may find http://www.gpsvisualizer.com useful to convert to GPX.
2. There is no possibility to pre-define courses.
We’ve decided that it is too hard to pre-define several dozens of courses and it is easy enough to define one on the fly.
