    3.0 out of 5 stars Realistic But Could Be More Fun April 8, 2012
    The simulation is very nice looking and releastic, but there's no option for racing computer opponents. The only way to compete is to find and join races on the Internet which depends on other people being on-line when you are and racing the type of boat that you want to race. Without artificial opponents, I got bored with this simulator pretty quickly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really great simulator!!! February 13, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    The real life simulation is incredible. If your a sailor or hope to be in the future you will get a real world experience that takes into account wind speed, wave action, current, and right down to crew weight and position. You have your choice of boats, course, and online play against a world wide group of competitors. You can set up your own conditions including wind speed, wave action, current, crew weight, rain, sun, day, night. It great!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Would not install correctly September 3, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Used a similar trial game some time ago and loved it, but was not able to successfully install this on my computer. It does not use the Amazon download app, the download took a long time, and there were many steps to get it to install. Every time I thought I was almost finished, copying and pasting numbers from the order form, etc. there was some new screen to get through. You have to register on their site with your name, address, phone, email before you can activate the game. I was not able to do this correctly for some reason, even after many attempts. Spent maybe 45 minutes trying to get it to work right. In the end gave up in frustration. Might be great, but I'll never know. Really disappointed, because it looked like something fun. I think we should be told up front about the complex installation and invasive registration for an inexpensive game.

    I am an avid sailor of 40+ years, 1/2 way through a circumnavigation. I bought it so my wife could experience sail trim and the effects and learn sail theory. It worked for that, but even as a two player game we were done with it in a couple of hours. Sometimes it is possible to flip the boat or get 'locked in irons' and a restart is the only solution.

    There is an expression, watching a sailboat race can be as exciting as watching the grass grow. Even more true in 2D

    1.0 out of 5 stars do not buy! December 30, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Bought the download first. Would not install. Contacted Stentec said there was a licensing problem. Could not issue activation codes. I then bought the hard copy same thing license problem. Would not install without codes Bottom line is you will not play this game unless you purchase directly from stentec. Good luck
