Interesting game. Looks gorgeous, but it's really quite difficult! Trying to shave a vital second off when sailing upwind is an exercise in frustration.

Still, worth the 59p or whatever it was I paid for it at the App Store.
Awesome.  The screenshots showed very nice graphics, but sometimes they can be misleading.  I'm still hoping a demo is released.

How are the rescue and airplane modes?

Last I checked, Sailboat Championship was in the top 50 Paid Apps on the Mac App Store, so the game seems to be popular.  The company should release their game for Steam and MGS as well.

I haven't got that far yet :)

The screenshots are a fair representation. If you like shiny, refractive water you'll like this game.

Good to hear the app's decent, otherwise the developers would have been keelhauled.

Cool.  Post again when you've tried out those modes.  I'm curious if they are worthy excursions of their own, or just gimmicky side games.
