Join the 2021 eSailing Season


The eSailing 2021 Season commences on 21 January 2021

If you haven’t been involved in eSailing on the Virtual Regatta before you may have a few questions. So we put together the most frequently asked questions we get …

  1. Am I graded on the number of races or is it an average over all of the races over time?
     – You get results for each open race that you compete in and the points from each race is added up towards the total results. Private races don’t count towards your national and world  rankings.
  2. Is it free?
    – Yes free to play however you can opt to purchase additional bling for your boat or pay for race helps.
  3. Do I need a team?
    – No this is raced solo even if it is a double handed boat you are racing.
  4. Do I need a gaming quality computer?
    – No. You can play on a tablet, phone or desktop computer as long as it has internet.
  5. How do I learn how to play?
    – The game has a sailing school to teach beginners how to play and the basic rules of sailing. And if you get your boat handling wrong you don’t get wet, so you can just keep sailing 😊

The Virtual Regatta YouTube channel has endless videos you can watch to get a feel for it too … HERE.
