There’s never been a more appropriate time to try eSailing.

Throughout the year, Virtual Regatta (the official eSailing platform of World Sailing) hosts special events where you can sail some of the most famous regattas in the world, competing in realtime against real boats with real weather data during events like the Vendée Globe, Route du Rhum, Sydney Hobart, Volvo Ocean Race, and the America’s Cup.

Right now, there’s a virtual offshore regatta called The Great Escape, a virtual race from La Rochelle, France to Curaçao in the Caribbean. Race against professional offshore sailors such as Sam Davies, Armel Le Cléac’h, Boris Hermann, and Jérémie Beyou who are participating in the race. Choose from one of four well-known, very cool offshore boats – the Ultim, IMOCA, Class 40, and the Beneteau Figaro 3. With the game’s weather conditions based on real-life data across the route, the estimated time of arrival for the first boat is March 31.

Try inshore too! Join a public race — or even better, set up a private race for your real-life sailing community. Duke it out in the 49er, F50, Day Boat Racer, Nacra 17, Star, or the F18!
