I've been doing exactly the same, but directly in the navobj.xml file. Use "Layers" then Export to convert the club's GPX file to OpenCPN XML. I copy only the announced mark names "1A", "1B" etc. not paying attention to sponsor
names nor lat/lon - they will come along. CaptTom method above transforms those waypoint XMLs into a route XML. When you start OpenCPN you have the race
as a route, no clicks. Works but not practical. I have created features requests in Tracker #2718
(regatta) and #2719
(offshore) - please up-vote and/or suggest further features.
