interactive sailing program

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good interactive sailing program or computer game that you have to trim the sails when you play. I would love to be able to play on my computer waiting for winter to be over and work on sail trim. Maybe I wont have to sit and think in the spring.. do I move that sheet lead forward or back. Thanks in advance for any advice. Larry Jordan S/V Valor.

Hey Larry, I don't know if this will carry you through to spring, but it's kinda fun.

Try out Virtual Skipper 3 or 4. Try a google search and you will find it. They have a good free demo you can download. It is pretty realistic and has some nice sailboats.

I play Sail Simulator 4.2

It is pretty cool...waves wind, trim the main, head sail leaning to reduce heel... the scenery is plain but it is pretty realistic...

20 euro's ...!
