Using this program you can simulate realistic physics of boat sails in a virtual 3D environment. There are dynamic weather parameters and diverse sailing challenges.
Sail Simulator is a Windows utility that provides an impressive simulation engine for accurately modeling real world sailing principles. Users are able to participate in competitive regattas against other people in multiplayer mode. Please note that the free demo version of Sail Simulator has limited functionality.
You can adjust the trim based on heel and course as well as master the art of tacking and jibing. It is possible to feel the tug of the wind on the boat and react accordingly. Every nuance of sail handling is realistically represented, demanding your focus and rewarding correct actions.
There is a large fleet of marine vessels, from nimble dinghies to majestic galleons. Each boat possesses unique characteristics, forcing users to adapt their sailing strategies to various weaknesses and strengths.
Applications for professional ship design such as FREE ship are available for download.
The dynamic weather system adds an extra layer of difficulty to the simulation. You are able to navigate through massive thunderstorms or shifting winds of a tropical cyclone. Weather conditions alter the sea state in unpredictable ways.
Five meticulously crafted nautical worlds, each with its own unique challenges and scenery, are included. Users can explore azure Caribbean regions or sail the treacherous waters of the North Sea.
