VIRTUAL SKIPPER 5|
The Must-Have Game for All Sailing Fans
Virtual Skipper 5 is the latest edition of the successful series of 3D regatta simulation games. In this new version, you take the helm of luxury sailing boats, racing across the open water of more internationally renowned ocean courses than ever before, including Qingdao, the sailing venue for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
A sophisticated wave animation model replicates tidal movement and wind flurries, forcing you to adapt whilst racing. Other variables include day and night settings that affect climatic conditions and visibility, all helping to reproduce a realistic sailing environment. Real life yachts in the game include the Offshore Racer and the Melges 24. Both vessels behave differently on the water, meaning you must master key racing tactics to navigate and perfect the courses.
Virtual Skipper 5 lets you compete at some of the most prestigious global sailing events, including Auckland, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and Qingdao.
Choose the appropriate level for competition depending on your experience. For knowledgeable navigators, there is a tactical mode, whilst novices can enjoy the arcade or 'no rules' mode, utilising the game’s editing system to create your own water courses.
