A gate in a passage race?

Coming up is a race down some shipping channels, great fun as long as not at night or in 20 knots .... however.
Is there any way of setting the sides of channel as a pair of "gate marks", so that the course must be between the two?  I know you could do it with Race Notes, but I am more interested in giving the drivers bearings (i.e. "No lower than x, no higher than y"

Could you use multiple keep-to-port, keep-to-starboard marks on either side of the channel?

But then you get a bearing to whichever you put first, left or right ... and then a bearing to the opposite one.

Re: A gate in a passage race?

I have done this in some races in HK... all i do is plot the course with say all the port rounding marks (I label them Aport, Bport, Cport etc... then I go along and right click on each Starboard mark eg: BStbd, and then  there is an option to "add Bstbd as gate to> " then select the mark you want it to be a gate to.

This way you can use the gate numbers boxes all the way down the course
