Here's a unique racing game - with sailboats!  I'm not aware of any other games where you can race with sailboats.

The graphics look pretty good from the screenshots on the Mac App Store.  You can also race with a jet ski and fly a bi-plane with some of the other gameplay modes.  There doesn't seem to be a demo, unfortunately.

But here's the best part: no Windoze version!  It's Mac and iOS exclusive!!

No Windows version ... I'm sure it'd be easy to "port."

Yeah, it might be easy to port, but that's if the company wants to.

Infinite Dreams developed Sailboat Championship, and I didn't notice any of the other games on their website being done for Windoze.  They seem to primarily be a mobile developer.  I think Sailboat Championship is their first title to be released for Mac.

Maybe Infinite Dreams is anti-Microsoft and they never plan on doing a Windoze version.  We can always hope!

Yeah, IMG should definitely review this, or at least make a news headline for it.  Although, unfortunately, IMG seems to be completely ignoring anything that comes out exclusively on the Mac App Store.  Not even Angry Birds got a headline.
