For clubs, classes, training centres and other groups
Clubs, classes, training centres and groups up and down the country are already organising their own regattas through Virtual Regatta to keep their sailors active and the competition and social is a welcome distraction and entertainment.
Organising private custom races
If you wish to organise races for your members, clients, squads, friends or other groups you can either buy coins or subscribe to a VIP pass so you can set up private 'custom' races. You can host private races for 200 coins. This is a cheaper option for just hosting a few races. If a club plans to host numerous races then it’s more cost-effective and easier to have a VIP pass.
The VIP pass provides:
- Unlimited free private races
- In-game special features – pro interface
- In-game discount (purchases are worth more)
- Premium support from VR
This will cost €9.99 for a month and allows you to run unlimited races for up to 20 people at a time. Once you have your VIP pass, then please see World Sailing's easy guide to hosting private races.
How to purchase the VIP pass
You’ll need to log into your user profile. You will then need to take the following steps:-
- Go to the game store by clicking on the basket in the top right of the home screen.
- Select the 1 Month VIP Membership subscription.
- Confirm your choice by tapping the green button, then proceed to payment.
€ NB: The subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.
NB: You’ll only earn ranking points for the Irish eSailing National Championship on public challenges – these are the blue bannered races in the game.
