eSailing National Championships
Following the success of last year’s inaugural eSailing World Championship, the RYA are pleased to be partnering with World Sailing and Virtual Regatta, the leading digital sailing platform, to launch the GBR eSailing National Championship.
The free-to-play online game provides players with an opportunity to race against friends, fellow sailors and real-world Olympic champions. All players from the United Kingdom will automatically be entered into the exclusive GBR eSailing National Championship, racing the same challenges, seasons and playoffs as the eSailing World Championship and ranking both nationally and globally.
The inaugural season will end on 01 September 2019 with the top ranking British eSailor crowned the 2019 GBR eSailing National Champion. The top ten British eSailors will automatically qualify for the eSailing World Championship Finals Playoff taking place in early September, with the top eight advancing to the 2019 eSailing World Championship Final in Bermuda.
Could you be crowned champion? Simply visit www.virtualregatta.com or download the ‘Virtual Regatta Inshore’ App from the App Store or Google Play.
Governed by the World Sailing Virtual Rules of Sailing, the eSailing World Championship closely matches the real-world rules and formats that govern on-the-water racing. The in-game ‘Sailing School’ provides a clear explanation of the sport and a new and effective learning tool to familiarise players with the strategies, tactics and terminology of sailing.
