If you download the demo and you get an error D3Dx9 DLL file missing you need the latest version of Microsoft DirectX 9.0 (june 2007)

There is a link to it in the forum on Virtual Skipper but you should get it direct from Microsoft.

Haven't had a chance to play. From what I have seen it looks better than the other sailing demo I tried.

O thanks sonofasailor looks interesting.

If a bunch of us downloaded it we could play online against each other. Of course since I know bumpkiss about sailng I will volunteer to be the continuous loser. Maybe I can upgrade the engine .... 250 hp out to do it.

Life is an adventure so get on with it.
