  • 🙂 me happy

    Good game very fun i sailor btw

  • Really lovable and enjoyable
    by /this app is bad on August 25, 2022 at 12:17 pm

    So I’m a actual person that sails irl, and I think there is some real potential in this game for teaching, and some may complain since even if you hit a boat or foul someone you don’t have to spin, you just kind of slow down and phases through whatever the foul was, but in reality it’s just making the game more fun and here’s an example why the phasing through can actually be funny. Also before I give you the reason you can make specific races just to race friends, and family. Let’s say you are playing with your family. And randomly you decide to just speed up and absolutely ram the judges boat and just slow down a lot, everybody will be laughing. I highly recommend this game for anybody that likes to do racing games or actually sails or teaches how to sail in irl. I really hope you enjoy this game to, chicken out( chicken out is not actually being afraid, but my sailboat name is Poisonous Chicken in irl, and I just thought it would be funny!

  • Could Be Great But Set Up For Pay2Play Makes It Boring
    by Tape Doctor on July 8, 2022 at 1:33 am

    Game is unstable loading so that is a big problem and it semi-regularly takes your coins but does not enter you into the race. This could be a great sailing game as there are so few available but you can buy so many helps that the AI is mostly sailing your boat. Get rid of VMG and time to line options to make it more challenging and level the playing field. Steering your boat correctly is the biggest challenge in racing. Would also be nice if you could pick one boat, e.g. Laser or that hydrofoiling cat and just race it without having to register yourself. $8.99/month is a ridiculous price point for VIP in this game.

  • BUG - I have lost a lot of money
    by BrunoCastroFernandea on June 10, 2022 at 2:51 am

    I've lost a lot of money with this game. it has a bug that when you click near the corner of the application window it moves as if it were going to close and the connection is lost and you are disconnected from the regatta losing the time that was in the regatta plus the coins you put to play the regatta with more resources. it has been like this for many years and no one fixes this bug. It's the only game I've seen that does this. should position the buttons higher up and not let the application lose connection. It's very frustrating!!! sometimes if you are in a good position then press the turn button and the application moves and loses the connection. frustrating and makes you lose money!

  • Fun, WHEN IT WORKS 😡
    by Skibumec on June 5, 2022 at 12:07 pm

    This game is a lot of fun but lately it crashes and you hardly ever get to finish a full race. You spend tokens to get sailing info (best vmg, wind shadow, etc) and then it crashes and you lose your tokens. Not worth it anymore.

  • Horrible Penalty System
    by jkdowjsbjd on April 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Wish I could give this game a better rating, but I just can’t. It is a fun game to play and really is interesting, but the penalty system absolutely ruins it. So many players have bad sportsmanship and will intentionally crash into your boat and give you a penalty. It is absolutely outrageous, and I deleted the game because of it. This has happened at least twice in every single one of my races. Fix it, and I will redownload.

  • Four and a half really
    by joblouras on January 6, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Backbone controller support would be awesome

  • Usa77129
    by usa 77129 on July 23, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Fun game. Extremely frustrating that rule 13 and 14 are not enforced.

  • Addicting- lots of bugs- bugs lose customer tokens
    by War Joy on July 12, 2021 at 4:02 pm

    I love this game but there are so many things I did not notice at first that make it hard to get really good. I probably race 2 to 7 times a day if I’ve got 10 minutes. I lose about 10 tokens a day and sometimes more due to glitches(-$). Starting line needs fixed with penalties over the line early being to harsh to continue racing for a top 7 in a 10 minute race,(unless your on a foiling hull with good tactics). I can’t stop racing though, can’t wait for no bugs. Other than $costly bugs and jacktards who battle for 10th when I’m trying to drink beer, the racing is REAL⛵️⚓️🍻🥴🏴

  • Not realistic
    by Groksana on May 7, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    It’s the best there is out there. I’m a sailor, I’ve raced, I’ve played video games — this is more game than sailing. You can’t run over your competitors on the water — or things get wet for everyone real fast. They just need to think about the rules and what they’ve created — there has to be a better balance in how the games handles allowing one boat to just sail through another... for me, it was fun, but I had to delete the game because I just lost interest.

  • Core concept is good, but lacking in so many ways.
    by UrsusDenali on April 12, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    The Good: this is an enjoyable racing game that has some real-world feel in tactics and strategy. It is definitely helping giving me some mental exercise in thinking about whole course thinking during pandemic and subsequent real-world sailing. The Feature Request: - Race Replay: If I could save/replay races, even reduced to the 2D map, this would be invaluable. I would be happy with this being a VIP feature. Any method of highlighting the good/bad from a race as well - like a Play of the Game, to let me see where the big gains were made. The Bad: - Rules Implementation: There seems to be some issues here around the idea of opportunity to keep clear leading to competitors using the rules as a cudgel. There are spots where the give way and keep clear boat switch very quickly without a clear reason. - Controls: Having one button for each direction with no adjustable sensitivity leads to situations where maneuvering is either too sensitive or not sensitive enough. There are far better control schemes out there for mobile games touch interfaces; using a gesture type slider with proportional control would be helpful to improve maneuvering. - The layout of action buttons (tack/gybe, vmg, luff, spin) could be clustered in a square rather than across the bottom of the screen, or provide the option to rearrange. Separate tack/gybe controls or actions (such as hold and flick up/down), as well as VMG upwind/downwind, spinnaker hoist/douse buttons would help avoid unintentional actions that ruin races. - Pay to Win: The monetization scheme feels all wrong. To pay for VIP features but still require further payment for reliable access to race help and design boosts is frustrating. To pay this much for a game that has such issues with controls, crashes/lags, rules implementation, and the fact that it feels like it hasn’t received significant improvements to keep it up to mobile gaming standards in 2021 is frustrating.

  • Wind shifts
    by soconnor1318 on April 7, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Extreme wind shifts are making the game unplayable. Reasonable shifts are great, but when wind goes 40° left followed by a swing 40° right of neutral, it’s hard to call the game realistic

  • I ve been kicked out of the game too many times
    by Pelagic310 on April 1, 2021 at 2:20 am

    I play on my iPhone. Control buttons are low on the screen. If you click for bearing away to close to the edge of the screen, the app closes! Same with tacking button or hoisting spinnaker. Latest version seems even more prone to be doing this than before. I went DQ or DNF on many races because of this.

  • Good
    by bob275319462917464 on March 31, 2021 at 2:22 pm

    Very good but needs better controls and the wind physics are only OK. Also, can you add more of a ship customization feature? This is a very good game/app an I think anyone should get it.

  • Stole my $
    by NnOoRrMm! on March 16, 2021 at 1:10 am

    Didn’t get VIP features I paid for!

  • keeps taking my tokens
    by Imbf on March 8, 2021 at 6:06 am

    UPDATE: utter trash app. constantly hangs or drops games now. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY WITHIN THIS APP i use my tokens for race helps, then i try to start the race. it hangs and/or send me back to the homepage and does not return the the tokens. so i’m constantly losing tokens without even being able to race or get the benefits that i “spent” the tokens for. this has gotten worse more recently and makes using this app incredibly frustrating.

  • Sail control
    by Ras7ach3f on February 27, 2021 at 3:30 am

    I would like to see more sail control options. A lot of time if feels like you have to sail 90 degrees to the wind in order to move.

  • Frustrating
    by 1093747 on February 20, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Very frustrating app. Crashes and stops working often.

  • Simple upgrade
    by Crazysk8t3r on February 17, 2021 at 12:38 am

    Make two buttons. Vmg upwind and vmg downwind. It’s annoying to duck someone and to hit the vmg button which sends you straight down wind... feel like this is something you can make as an option but would be preferred by tons of people!

  • Update
    by anoumyi on February 10, 2021 at 1:40 am

    Rules are bad

  • Crap game to many bugs.
    by shshegdhge on January 26, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Great game. Horrible bugs. Restarts constantly, crashes all the time. Don’t spend any money buying race helps because they don’t work. If they could fix this would be awesome but haven’t been able to yet.

  • Good except with protests
    by decentsailor12 on January 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    The sailing and racing is amazing, however The rules system is completly broken. There is no penalties for giving room for duck, room to tack etc, and sometimes you will be given a penalty even thought you are the right of way boat. Completly ruins the game that there is no protest system and u are just given a penalty.

  • Pretty good. Some things could be better
    by EDM130 on December 30, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    Pretty cool game but the controls can sometimes be a little glitchy which can send you to the back of the fleet real fast. Overall it’s pretty fun and somewhat realistic.

  • Grow up
    by f$&0you on December 15, 2020 at 11:28 am

    Everyone just does everything they can to get a penalty on the boat in front or next to them. No one races

  • Encourage bad sailing behavior??
    by Matt Githens on November 30, 2020 at 2:41 am

    I’m about two weeks into this game. This game has nothing to do with sailing or ethics... this game absolutely rewards people for “tackling” others. The game does zero to alert you that you’ll be penalized when this happens... because there is so little time. Maybe I’m just misinformed and this is how sailors fight each other. But if a boat turns hard off path and rams my boat, please explain why I get a penalty and they don’t. I’m not saying we are rounding a buoy or on tack... this is when we are in a dead heat and headed to finish, they hard cut to ram me. Trash game, played by trashy players.

  • Seems like they fixed awesome game!
    by BmoreBman on November 29, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    ...loving the simulator! As a sailboat racer, I love the different boats available to race!

  • Keeps me sane in the off-season
    by The V Show on November 29, 2020 at 3:06 am

    Fun way to keep the knife sharp when the real thing is under the shrink wrap for the winter.

  • Great but...
    by Dlenss on November 12, 2020 at 5:17 pm

    I love sailing, and racing sailboats. Been looking for a good racing app, and this is the best out there. One request: Can you make a game mode without any of the race helps, or make specific events (e.g. all Official eSailing World Championship related events) with disabled race helps? It seems silly to me that players who pay for the subscription, or horde tokens to splurge on specific events, get an upper hand. It’s not a fair race unless you choose to pay the monthly subscription, and thus, this game is biased towards pay to win. Nobody should be able to perfectly time starts, have visibility on lay lines hundreds of meters out, automatically steer to the best possible VMG, or get special visibility on wind shadows and/or wind intelligence. Make it an even playing field. A racing game that gives a leg up to paying racers isn’t very palatable if you really want to foster competition. Also, expect frequent crashes and random game freezes. I’m rating this 3 stars until the level the playing field and fix the random bugs.

  • great but
    by 122227615 on October 21, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    This is one of my favorite games but the 2 things i would fix the most is that when you are under the line by about a boat length after go you are still called over early. Another thing is if my phone says i have 20% left and gets the notification it will kick me out of the game. As well as if i were to change my brightness or settings.

  • Figure it out
    by mehnameAsh on October 10, 2020 at 12:40 am

    Maybe fix the disconnect issues, don’t tell me it’s my connection either as I am often the last or one of the last boats to lock up. Pretty easy to tell when boats go past the mark to the map boundary. Get your sh*t together, get a back pack, and get it together. Get it all together and take it to the sh*t store or the sh*t museum, I don’t care just get your sh*t together.

  • Good concept and gameplay, but limited content and crazy pay service.
    by Jb431v2 on September 19, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    The game and the gameplay itself are pretty fun, and actually require some level of strategy in the races. It is a big downside that you can only race in the cup they’ve selected, for the amount of time it is open. It would be nice if there were cups available for each type of boat, all of the time. The VIP service is a total ripoff. You pay for a service, and basically get the ability to create races, adjust your controls, enhanced tech support, and some other pretty useless features. They also need to update the way the rules are implemented in the game, as there are many players that have learned how to exploit the system, causing others to get penalties and lose speed/progress.

  • Just love it
    by ricks619 on September 10, 2020 at 12:26 pm

    Landlocked and loving the reality of “being on the water”. I finish last almost every time but I’m happ and get out to do it again. It’s a little hard to figure out the control of each boat but it gets easier over time. Definitely a learning curve. Wish the were an “on deck” perspective for the races. Thanks for getting us arm chair Ahabs back on the water

  • Great game but shame on the creators.
    by sailorjerey on August 11, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Y’all are thieves I purchased some coins to get vmg and the game has crashed about 20 times making me lose the coin without racing, how would you allow this to happen I. Your app. Fix the glitch that is costing your costumers money and do your job..

  • Add Optis Please!
    by opti sailor on July 24, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Please add Optis. It would make the game so much better.

  • Great game
    by Fletchy1822 on July 23, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    I spent a long time looking for a good sailing app and this is it! I would have given it 5 stars if there were more sailing options like an offline practice mode or something like that so I could get better with some of the boats I don’t use as often. Other than that the game is great and a lot of fun!

  • Server straight suuuucks
    by thirsty247247 on July 22, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    Constantly losing connection in the middle of race, and gets errors saying no connection.

  • Constantly crashes
    by MP65 on June 29, 2020 at 12:51 am

    Constantly crashes and costs me money. Customer support is always very slow to respond and hard to find. Racing in a series is pointless as every crash of the game results in a DNF and gives max points. I really wish it was a better game, I run more advanced games on my iPad like the F1 series with no problems.

  • Best game ever!!!!!
    by Racket Ball Girl on June 28, 2020 at 12:20 am

    This is the greatest game I have ever played l. It is so fun. It reminds me of Racket Ball.

  • Protest issue
    by "."-- on June 18, 2020 at 5:44 pm

    The game should punish people who protest over “x” times. Competitive racing is a war of stupid fouls..

  • Good game but really mad
    by dgurdbh on June 13, 2020 at 3:40 am

    I love this game but it seems everytime i try to turn left i i cant. It only happens on certain legs to and it has gotten so bad i have been losing races a ton because of it so if someone could please fix this that would be much appreciated. Thanks

  • Great game could be better!
    by Noarka on June 4, 2020 at 2:21 am

    Love the competition in the game. Definitely great strategy practice. The game would be improved by having more variety of courses, a compass that worked to read wind shifts, and more variation in wind speeds across the course. Leeward boats should not be able to steering upwind just to cause a penalty on the windward boat - in real racing boats are required to sail the course and avoid collisions.

  • Dislike Update
    by boo123zoom on May 26, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    I have really liked this game a lot on my iPad before this most recent update. I used a keyboard, but with is new update, the fine tuning I was able to achieve with the arrow keys changing my heading by one degree at a time was awesome, and has completely gone away. Now when I use my arrow keys my boats heading changes by 15 degree, this completely ruined my whole game. Please add better support for keyboard on iPad.

  • Best sailboat racing game out there.
    by Jawsome997 on May 26, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    This is by far the best racing games (sailing) on the App Store. It hits on all of the key aspects of racing; fighting for a good start, wind shifts, wind shadow, vmg, etc. The only areas that could use some improvement are the rules and how a penalties are resolved. The basic rules are all there, port/starboard, windward/leeward. I think the rule accuracy at mark roundings could be improved. If I remember correctly a boat has no rights if they are head to wind until they have established at least a close hauled course. Also, (someone already mentioned this in a review but I agree) penalties are payed off immediately with a timed speed reduction. It works pretty well, but it kind of incentivizes sailors to force a penalty rather than sail their proper course. In real racing penalties can be fulfilled by doing circles at anytime between when they occur and when the offender crosses the finish line. I think this should be added into the game, at least for the non foiling boats. My only other comment is that the game is on the verge of “pay to win”. There are certain advantages that you can buy with game tokens. The tokens can be purchased or won and it’s not to hard to win them. But, let’s be honest real life racing is also very much a pay to win sport so think what you want... At the end of the day, if you have been racing for years, just learning to race or just learning to sail; this is a great game for you.

  • Great app
    by sati2256 on May 19, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    Very real everything! The only thing is the one mobile kick you out of the regatta room if you check a notification or something out of the game

  • Kicked off game a lot
    by The Silent Partner on May 19, 2020 at 5:47 am

    Major complaint is that if you select helps, you’re way more likely to get kicked off the game mid race. Very buggy game. I did also upgrade my router and internet service. They should refund when you purchase helps then get kicked out.

  • greed
    by another_annoyed on May 14, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    constant crashing, game ends on low battery warning, (and no restoration of tokens after either case) reduced awards during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC...

  • Coins!!!!!!
    by sniffle piffles on May 10, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    Coins are such a pain, and when you enter a race to get coins the lobby never fills up. This needs to be fixed.Have a login reward system where every day you login you get a prize, and make coins easier to get

  • Racing rules is a joke
    by why is the nickname taken on May 8, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Serous flaws in the racing rules the developers should study them and address each on and the penalty system needs to be changed, intentional fouls ruin the game

  • Great but please add sail control,gusts and sea state
    by PYC54 Cam on May 6, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    The app is great. But adding sail control (single line, nothing fancy), gusts, sea state and the ability to capsize would be cool and make it more like real sailing. Thanks!
