The sport of sailboat racing is one of excitement and strategy. Not only are you competing against the times of other boats, but you are also up against the wind and your own sailing knowledge and abilities. Introduction to Sailing is designed to teach you the fundamentals of sailboat racing. Once you understand the basic strategies, you can race a sailboat on the 'Skipper's Course' and the 'Web Cup Course.'

If you have never sailed before, or if you do not understand the tenets of sailing strategy, such as tacking and the different types of sails, we suggest that you proceed through the 'All Hands on Deck' section. If you already feel comfortable skippering your boat around the courses, then feel free to challenge yourself to a personal best time.

Finally, the 'About this Game' section gives you the story behind the creation of this game, and creation credits for Introduction to Sailing.
