3d Sailing Simulator, 2sail


3D Sailing simulator to help you Sail Faster in your real boat.

Get to the front of the fleet in your real boat by knowing what to do when and sailing faster.

Look at the picture above and spot the things to go faster:
- too much twist in the sail, pull the boom vang (kicker) on
- bubbles at back, bad "trim", sit further forward
- more wind (gust) on left side of the course (darker patch), get there

Now imagine just knowing all these skills on windshifts, sail shape, tide and more

Learn what to do and when, by sailing in a controlled repeatable environment.

30 levels, each designed to build your skills, easily, one at a time.

This is the fast track to getting winners experience. Most people take many years and still often don't "get it".

You can get there much more quickly by sailing lots of controlled races, each designed to help you go faster
or take the shortcuts.

Suitable for anyone wanting to improve their sailing, yachting and racing skills.

Free version provides steering, mainsail, balance and telltales.

Purchase in game, only $3 USD. to get weight trim (fore and aft), windshifts (5 different types), boomvang (kicker), starting speed and line bias, gusts plus 5 levels specifically on tides and currents.



This would have to be the easiest way to learn more about how to make your boat go faster.

As a coach for 30 years, I was keen that the visual clues are the same in the simulator as in real boats.

This simulator isolates each skill, one at a time, so that it is easy to master them all.
10 levels focus on "learn to sail" skills.
10 more levels on racing faster.
10 levels on more advanced skills and knowledge

In most sailing situations, all the skills are bundled together and each time on the boat is different, which makes it very difficult to know exactly what you need to learn or what you are doing wrong.

Some levels in this simulator are focused only on improving boat speed eg balance, trim, boom vang (kicker), telltales.
Some levels are on just one type of tactical decision... ie a particular type of windshift or tides and current.

These are complete with the same visual clues that a real boat has. I have deliberately avoided wiggly lines on the water or lots of instruments that many boats do not have access to or are distracting.

The early levels may seem very easy (for sailors), the more advanced levels give insights into skills that very few sailors ever get to understand or enjoy.

The "Champions Challenge" test your knowledge on Trim, Vang, balance, main, rudder and "Massive" tide.

Boat speed, heeling and pointing angle are all effected by combination of controls and wind strength.

If you sail on a dinghy or a yacht this will help you to go faster.

App optimised for late model Devices and tablets with faster processors eg Nexus 7, 10, Samsung galaxy note tab, Asus transformer. Expressowifi

Note: There is a good chance that any device running less than Android version 4 may not be fast enough to run this game properly. Visit the website for more details.

Great physics and teaching; hideous interface This sailing sim looks awful on my tablet — it's like a console game from the 1980s, and has a UI to match — but it works well, and does a good job teaching the sailing essentials, separately at first, and then in combination. This *is* the right sailing sim to download. Note that only a couple of lessons work without an in-app purchase, but it's enough to try it out. After the purchase you have to log in every time you start the sim, which is annoying, even though when it prefills your username and password. Five stars for a better, more standard Android UI and graphics that look like they were created in this millennium, but still, the fundamentals are all good. (Update: thanks for the reply. Slick graphics would be nice, but the physics are the important part, and you did a good job on that.)

Controls are completely impossible I am a sailor but I can't work out the controls (do you swipe from the boat?)

Phone freezer After opening it twice and having to take the battery out twice, uninstalling. C'mon Android, get your act together and check these apps out. Thinking seriously about another OS, tired of uninstalling 90% of apps

Great game and honest seller! Loaded the trial and loved it. Bought the pro version and almost immediately had trouble logging in. They responded promptly, reset everything and threw in an unsolicited regatta upgrade! There are lots of layers to this game and I'm looking forward to digging into all the ways to use the deep control system to advantage.
