Ramping up for Virtual Sailing Worlds
Published on April 9th, 2017
Hosted by SailX, the 3rd Virtual Sailing World Championship will start on April 17 and conclude five weeks later on May 14 with a Grand Final – a single regatta between the Top-30. Winner-takes-all. Entry is open and free, with scoring ramping up as the competition progresses, giving new players time to get up to speed.
Last year’s event featured competitors from 70 countries worldwide racing 264 official regattas, 1,694 races and 168,672 boat starts in over 36,000 hours of racing!
“SailX has tremendously improved my ability to think in terms of strategy around the course and tactics in the presence of other boats,” noted 2015 winner Bob Christensen. “Possibly the more important thing to me, it has improved my ability to anticipate situations as each real life race progresses. I am looking forward to bringing the tremendous amount that I have learned over these past months to bear on my real life racing.”
