Mac sail simulator?

Back to my roots now. Just purchased the new I-Mac 20" with the Intel core2 Duo processor and 10.4.8 OS. Hopefully no more PC hoops to jump through.

I know," limited software " available,, So does any Mac users know of an all around sail simulator? Day sailor, cruiser, fun class racer. New to me 1986 O'Day 222 purchased this spring after 50 years of stink-boating.

Thank you in advance.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey ! with that new intel i-mac you can run bootcamp < Comes with imac > and run windose natively or run windoze in a window via Parallels http://www.parallels.com/en/products/desktop/ and use any windoze stuff out there while still in OS-X ;-) Remember one still must own a legal copy of windoze.

From the title of this, I thought it was going to be about a Macgregor 26X sail simulator. I thought that was a bit strange but like a train wreck I had to look.

I can understand that ;-) but we mac users can and will interject something about the computer of choice during any conversation on any topic.

three Mac's before

My first pute was the Macintosh Enhanced. (My son learned on this machine) It is in the attic and still runs.
The second was one of the first I-Mac's ,Turquoise / Silver that I sold to a fellow auto salesman six years ago that I used, I forget how many years. As of last Saturday that machine is still working.
The third is an Orange I-Book OS 8 system. This machine also works. I used it for the last two to three years I worked and I'm retired now two years. My eyes started to get out of focus and so I bought a cheap PC that got to be to irritating to use.
I decided to get this new I-Mac and so I'M back home.
Conclusion,,,, All my previous Mac's still are working and have not ever had to be worked on. I sold my beloved powerboat and bought a 222 O'day with a 5hp outboard and did not even use 6 gallons of gas this year and enjoyed quality time on the water Cataracts have been removed and the eyes are perfect now. So the simulator will help me get through the long winter.

LIFE IS GOOD!

Thanks guys for the support and info!!
