This is an interactive computer game for everyone who is interested in sailing or water sports in general - it simulates a sailing race. The games have 1 and 2 or 4 player modus. You steer a sailing boat using simple commands: tack, jibe, luff up, bear away - or make use of an autopilot. Learn strategy and tactics while playing against a fictive opponent, either the wind, a sparring partner or time. You can have a lot of fun with the wind, many wind patterns from 1x1, 2x2, ... 8x8 will force you to concentrate to become a winner. Our boats are steered with the help of a polar diagram: Opti, Laser, Finn, 420er, 470er, 29er, 49er also a keel boat H-Boat and Maxi yacht TP 52. Optimal boat speed can be traced all the way: beating upwind , on a reach or run. The optimal positions for the main sail, fore sail, spinnaker, and gennaker are set automatically. A sailing race is definitely a game against the wind: upwind, reach or downwind, lulls, puffs, as well as oscillating or shifting wind.
The program includes a learning module: tactical tips from David Dellenbaugh are presented as video-clips, e.g. that illustrate the advantage of sailing the long tack first, or downwind and upwind tactics. Using tactics while sailing a race means to know how to use the particular features of laylines, the rules of the zones, overlapping, and the inside position of buoys on any course: from the Olympic trapeze to up and down. We use optimal angles to tack or to jibe and we give tips to maneuver if you get a header, a lift, or persistent shift.
Game type: 1 and 2 player modus. Sail against wind, a sparring partner or time, game level for beginners and up to complex situations.
With the Coach's Toolbox you receive over 20 prepared scenarios ? ready to run ? which you use can practice and expand your sailing capabilities at any time. Many qualified coaches already use this special Coach's Toolbox in their work with the "Tactical Sailing" program. Through use of the various animations, attention and concentration are verifiably boosted, where the single sequences can be individually changed as needed. The toolbox is a very effective tool at one's disposal for the design of seminars, lectures and workshops for all educational levels.
