Do not know before he is a surgeon, he has to do well in MCAT, pass his Anatomy class, study human physiology, internal medicine, clinical pharmcology and etc. There are lot of books. Then He has to watch in distance before he can pick up the scalpel.

Have you thought about that?

sailx is a rules and tactics simulator. It doesn't addess things like sail trim at all. But for rules it's great. Play sailx for a couple months and you'll know the rules better than almost anyone you sail against.

I'm surprised the major gaming companies have not come out with an America's Cup game in light of the upcoming races...??

Thanks. Does it have telltales in multiple locations that on the main and job that you can play with against the speed.

It would be super like if we can play with draft and and twist etc. Such games will really help to reinforce my understanding. It is so impossible to experiment in real life when the all the conditions are changing all the time.

This one is kind of a learning experiance, not as deep as you asked for but has trims, rudder and wind direction...
