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 ...!

www.sailsimulator.com
