SAIL 2000 is a CD-ROM sailing simulator for Windows PCs. It depicts the highly exciting and challenging strategic and tactical sport of yacht match racing with a quality that has not been equaled. It does this using sophisticated multimedia sound and graphics and an incredibly precise dynamic sailing model.

When a yacht in SAIL 2000 changes speed this is due entirely to complex aero and hydrodynamic calculations of the wind forces on the sails and the water forces on the hull. The yachts modeled are based on the IACC class and are both fast and extremely responsive sailboats.

SAIL 2000 gives you great flexibility in setting up the type of course you wish to sail and the type of wind conditions you will encounter. It even lets you choose the quality of the on-the-water judging! The simulator uses actual ISAF racing rules to determine rights of way and informs the player what rule number is in effect at any time.

You can race by yourself against the artificial intelligence controlled computer opponent or against a friend on the same computer using the new split-screen interface. For the ultimate challenge visit the Internet Lobby where you can race SAIL 2000 human opponents from around the world.

SAIL 2000 includes a comprehensive manual that not only describes the functioning of the simulator but also gives a very solid introduction to both sailing theory and racing tactics and strategies.
