Tacking battles are some of the most exciting experiences at a sailing regatta. Tacking battle, Nouveda's new totally realistic sailing regatta game lets you enjoy this tension.
Use windshifts better than the competitor, force him into unwanted tacks and win.
It is a very realistic game for sailing enthusiasts with a competitor who knows the Racing Rules of Sailing. The player needs to know how to use wind shifts and how to use the rules to his own advantage.

Ratings and Reviews
Sailing anarchy recommended this app, so following their infinite wisdom I gave it a fair shot. I agree with the previous posts/reviews, Tacking Battle is predictable, unfair to basic sailing rules, glitchy and slow to refresh on tacks. You get tired of getting hit from behind or T boned while on starboard. In fact stay far away from the opponent as he helms like Sir Coutts. Giving the recommended room at the boarders is a waste as you are not given the same nor can you tack as fast and as frequent as the opponent. You live and die by the almighty wind sock. Which is like watching the windex on top of the mast - not sailing! Great concept but an update or re-design is needed! Viva du anarchy!
A great game, except it's hard to play because of horrible controls. Every time I hit the "head up" or "fall off" button, they move on-screen and change wording! Every time you steer, the controls change, which means you're trying to figure out how to drive the boat the whole race instead of concentrating on the tacking battle. This would be a fun, addicting game, but I won't be opening this app again until I see an update where "head up" and "fall off" remain constant in one corner.
Tacking Battle 2.0
Version 2.0 is a huge improvement over 1.0. They have addressed the shortcomings of 1.0. Wind shifts are now random, racing rules are in force. By the time you graduate to the upper levels, you know you're in a race course battle. Much, much better and quite fun!
