The eSailing 2021 season is in action

eSailing is aimed at everyone from expert sailors to sports gamers, the eSailing is helping World Sailing to inform, engage and inspire the next generation of sailors and sailing fans. The goal is to bring the excitement that comes with harnessing the power of nature to the phones and tablets of fans around the world.

Sailing demands constant inputs and an acquired skillset to manage the relationship between the boat and the forces of nature. These unique qualities are all captured accurately in this virtual world and enable sailors onshore, and fans without access to sailing equipment, to become engaged and inspired by the excitement of sailing.

The in-game Sailing School provides a clear explanation of the sport and a new and effective learning tool for better understanding the strategies, tactics and terminology of sailing. Governed by the World Sailing Virtual Rules of Sailing, eSailing closely matches the real-world rules and formats that govern the sport.

eSailing Groups

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:-

  1. Go to the game store by clicking on the basket in the top right of the home screen.
  2. Select the 1 Month VIP Membership subscription.
  3. 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.

Safety Online

We hope and trust that everyone will enjoy eSailing with Virtual Regatta safely and responsibly, treating other competitors of all ages with respect.  If a young person aged under 18 feels uncomfortable or intimidated by any message received via Virtual Regatta, they can find useful contact details and advice for clubs on keeping young people safe online HERE.
