Thx, Nautka
Nothing wrong with your English; you are quite right to use the terms 'legs' for the various segments of a race course or of a multi-part voyage...it is just my peculiar sense of humour when I see the phrase 'comparing legs' - I think of a dressing room full of chorus girls before a Broadway show .

The term that Jimmy Cornell uses in describing a course across an ocean is 'routes', but I think that some routes might have several legs...

My new phone uses Android OS - when I figure out how to use my phone - my kids call me Jurassic Jim - I will load your app and try it!
