Description

*** A highly realistic sailing simulator for the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. ***
*** A MUST HAVE for sailing fans. ***
*** The best sailing game. ***

Have fun sailing fantastic boats in 3D in-shore regattas, right from the comfort of your phone and without even getting wet.

In this game, you will use the wind to move your boat fast and win regattas against other boats. You will be the skipper, the helm-man and will also trim the sails.

The main features of this realistic sailing game are:

- Online sailing: sail against real people!
- Or play in 'solo' mode: you'll compete against the computer, with different difficulty levels.
- A perfect way to refine your sailing techniques and tactics, or to learn how to sail in life-like situations.
- For beginners, cWind can coach you from marker to marker, by means of steering helps and progressive tutorials.
- A very complete instruments panel will give you all the data you'll need to brew a winning tactic and arrive first on the finishing line. But if you find that's too much, you can switch back to the 'basics'.
- Several boat types, from a 19th century cutter to the latest Imoca 60 footer. And now a new beach catamaran. The boats have their own characteristics and need to be sailed accordingly.
- Several regatta courses, some easy to start with, others very difficult to complete. Some of the regattas are even more challenging than what you'll ever encounter on real water! So make sure you choose the right boat for those... and keep her well trimmed at all times!
- The game implements the ISAF 2013-2016 racing rules of sailing. Respect them or you'll be penalised, like in real regattas!
- An on-screen radar will show you a tactical view of the course and will guide you from marker to marker.
- Two game modes: pure regattas, or regattas "with a twist", where you will hunt for "magic things" on the course to capsize the other boats, steal their wind, give you a turbo boost, and more...

You will have to use the wind and tidal currents to your advantage. You will steer the boat by tilting your phone, and you will trim your sails yourself for maximum speed.

Fair Winds and Following Seas!

Version V1.10 (Dec 09, 2012)

We've added Leaderboards, so you can see how you fare against others.

We've also added an indicator on the boat to show you easily who has the priority in case of a potential collision. So you can remove the pop-up windows and still know who's right (Settings menu, select "No" for "Show sailing rules applied").

Version V1.6 (Mar 22, 2012)

Bug fixes. We apologize for the frequent crashes and odd behaviors encountered when using cWind in recent V1.4 and V1.5 versions. This new version V1.6 fixes the major crashing issues and improves the downwind sailing ability of the competitor boats under spinnaker.

Version V1.5 (Mar 12, 2012)

New in V1.5:
- The polars of the Imoca boat have been refined to ensure better sail-ability. This will also allow you to complete Tutorial 3 more easily.
- Stability improvements

New in V1.4:
- You can now hoist a spinnaker when sailing downwind for extra speed.
- You can now view the course on a map (North up) when sailing the regattas. The radar (forward up) is still available, and you can choose to use it by selecting it from the Settings menu.
- The true wind data on the instruments panels is now a "water relative" true wind, and no longer a "land relative" true wind. This means that, even when there is a strong tidal current, the indications on the panels will be symmetrical when you tack.
- Improved starting techniques for the boats managed by the machine. It will be even tougher to win the regattas, especially in Expert mode.
- Performance improvements throughout the game, ensuring an even smoother experience.
- Several bug fixes.
