Realistic Engaging Navigation Simulation


There’s still room for improvement but I really enjoy the game. It makes following the races much more fun because you can really feel the challenges the racers face.

I’m still a newbie but my real world sailing & navigation experience is all relevant so I’m doing ok so far. To be competitive you really need to check in several times per day, and over a two or three week race like the Volvo it takes a commitment.

I don’t have a problem paying a few $ to get the gear I need to be competitive. Somebody needs to pay for all the software development and the servers, otherwise they’d need ads that would be really unpleasant. It is annoying that buying cards with real $ cannot buy the exact cards I need. The random card selection process is out of context for a simulation - when I go to the store for a piece of gear I get what I came for. Rolling the dice to maybe buy stuff I want but probably buy stuff I don’t want is a weakness of the design.



Warning: This game may be addicting and lead to loss of productivity and perhaps your ball and chain. I love it. I fantasize that I am truly racing around the world in my VOR 65, but I find myself having to check in regularly to keep up with changing weather and currents. I just wish the real boats positions were streaming live so you could better compare yourself to them. It is actually better than reality because it is millions of dollars less expensive, the food is better, the sleeping accommodations are much better and sail changes are so much easier! Thanks, and keep up the good work.

I am a long time player and love the game. The thing that bothers me is that when i started is was a fee for the whole game, now it is per leg that makes the game expensive and for a lot of people to much. I hope that they will change it back to what it was. Also if you change course and just want to check it out it will set that course, I like to see an extra step that ask you if you want to change. Like I said I love the game and I hope that they going to make it more affordable! I know I can play for free but I they make it more affordable more people will play!
