For a beginning sailor, this is a great way to help learn the basics of sailing without a boat. I love how it gives you a feel for the wind and how it affects the sail. The only thing I found irritating is that the boat doesn't stay the same as you turn into the wind as if you were on a boat when learning the terms. Besides that, I think it's a pretty helpful app that I'll be playing a lot in the future.
Eh. Had much higher hopes for this. Doesn't really teach anything that a beginner wouldn't already know... It's incredibly short and doesn't have much content or knowledge at all. Pretty shocked this costs money. Probably wouldn't use this if it were free.
Bought this so I could start learning the basics of sailing. I now feel comfortable with basic terminology and understanding how the boat works with the wind. The free sailing at the end is fun in itself even! My friends like to mess around on it too, so that is a good sign!
ASA is great - App is fixed and running great I have sailed and raced for a big part of my life. This is a nice teaching tool. It also fun. The issue is that on my Nexus 9 tablet running 7.1.1. the latest upgrade has turned this into a great App. I have changed my review and give it 5 stars. It run very very nicely.
The game is great but it's just sooo laggy it's completely unplayable. That's saying something because my phone can play like 99% of games downloaded. Optimize please!
👍 I thought it felt very natural as far as bringing the boat up to speed, sail luff, and rudder to wind vector calculations for a phone game. Definitely worth the few bucks to learn basic handling on & try to get your times down. A tiller/wheel option would be nice. Also, a m.o.b. drill would be good to include. Thanks & Nice job.
