Sailing Simulator on Steroids

Use the simulator to go through various scenerios with sailors and coaches

Coaching tools

  • Powerboat mode (of course)
  • Rack all the boats together with a single button
  • add text and voice communication
  • "skyhook" for coach boat to hold in any location and angle before "rack up"
  • eg just before bottom mark or rounding top mark on port?
  • adjust start line and course bias
  • adjust wind direction & strength + gusts (type, frequency, size, strength, direction, starting point and more)
  • adjust tide (strength & direction)
  • "helper graphics" for wind & tide directions, shadows etc


2Sail-Simulator- Sailing

Sailing Tactics and Windshifts

  • Observing where there is more (or less) wind
  • "reading" land shape & gusts (spreading, new wind or oscillating)
  • Get there faster by taking the shorter course
  • Dealing with tide, when to get into it, or out of it
  • Tide effect on the start line, each leg and at mark roundings


Racing for Boat speed

How to make your (real) boat go faster

  • Weight and balance, more than sitting on the side but when and where
  • Sail settings trading speed and height (angle to wind)
  • Vang (kicker) twist on sail
  • Centreboard (daggerboard) control side drift and speed (friction)
  • Halyard



Learn to Sail (going upwind)

  • showing nogo zone
  • Sail boats can not sail directly upwind, they must "zig zag" upwind.
  • if you try to sail too close to the wind direction, the sail flaps and boat slows down
  • Controls on this step include mainsail and steering then find the best course upwind (not the red zone)
  • Visuals to use include luffing & flapping sail and telltales on luff (front part of sail)

An easy and efficient way to "understand" the mechanics of sailing, try it yourself
