SAIL 2000 is the most advanced sailing simulator ever built for the Windows operating system.
The SAIL 2000 model deviates less than two percent from actual competitive International America's Cup Class yacht designs. This accuracy is achieved for all points of sail and in all wind conditions from two to thirty knots.
The spectacular graphics and quality sound of SAIL 2000 make it highly appealing to the computer user wanting state of the art simulation. Experienced sailors will appreciate the accuracy and full nature of the simulation, while non-sailors will find SAIL 2000 easy to learn while still being fun and challenging. This is a great gift.
The simulator uses actual International Sailing Federation racing rules to determine rights of way and even informs the player what rule number is in effect at any time. Sail 2000 also provides accurate weather simulation.
