Takes a little while to get used to the controls, but hey once you get it, you've learned the basics of catching the wind, which might save you some time on the lake trying to figure it out on the real thing. There are two types of controls for trim/ease one of which is up/down in the pause menu. To scroll through the regatta courses you just need to click and drag. Otherwise, graphics are actually quite good and the game is pretty entertaining for a non-sailor as me. AI opponents don't seem to know how to sail upwind. The ghost version of your best race is a pretty neat feature that makes you want to improve your trajectory and wind management.
Fun but a bit quick
I'm a sailor and I was happy to find a sailing simulation. It's a fun app, to be sure, and a great diversion but I have a problem with the pace of the game. In particular it is very hard to keep up with trimming the sail while steering at the same time. If I had my choice I would slow it down by a half at least; that way you could actually react to the wind with the sail trimming, as it is now your stabbing at the keys and not really finessing the physics that are what sailing is all about. I would be much happier if the game were slower. I'd feel more in control.
I was so excited to see a sailing sim written for Mac I jumped on this. I guess it's OK, but not realistic in any real-world sense of the word. It plays like an arcade game. The boat you start out with is unlike any boat I've ever sailed: this thing makes some Donzi's look bad. An FD will plane to windward, but this thing flies on all points of sail. Has the speed characteristics of a three-point hydro, but looks sorta like a Flying Scot with a cabin. Anyway, I'm still looking for a "real-world" sailing/racing sim running under OSX. This is probably a good alternative to Solitaire, but it's no sailing sim. Oh, and there are no other boats! (when has THAT ever happened to you on the water? LOL)
