Proven hugely successful in recent years, the eSailing game allows you to experience off-the-water fun on virtual racecourses with friends and club members.
Virtual Regatta is free to use. Simply visit their website or download either the inshore or offshore app. In each of these dynamic sailing games, you’ll learn how to virtually compete against players around the globe.
On the inshore app, sail a fleet of inshore yachts including ultra-fast foiling catamarans, dinghies, or cutting-edge monohulls. With the offshore app, you’ll become the skipper of your boat/sailboat.
To compete and keep your score, you’ll need to create a login and a user profile. You also have the option of entering the eSailing World Championships as well as other exclusive events in the sailing game.
The in-game Sailing School provides a clear explanation of the sport and a new learning tool to better understand sailing strategies, tactics, and terminology.
Governed by the World Sailing Virtual Rules of Sailing, the eSailing World Championship closely matches the real-world rules and formats that govern the sport.
Clubs, classes, and training centres up and down the country have been utilising virtual racing to engage members and customers. eSailing is a great way to stay connected off the water, especially during the colder months or periods when you’re unable to sail.
If you’d like to organise races for members, clients, squads, or other groups you’ll need to make an account. Here you can set up private 'custom' races for up to 20 players in the sailing game. Once you’ve registered, visit World Sailing's easy guide to hosting private races. A VIP pass allows you to run unlimited races for £8.99 for a month.

Note: The subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.
