With the temporary suspension of sailing and everyone having to stay at home it is the perfect time to start eSailing, It’s a fantastic way to stay in touch and continue racing and practice your racing tactics.

You don’t need to pay to use Virtual Regatta. It’s as simple as visiting their website from a laptop or PC or downloading the app on a smartphone or iPad and clicking ‘play now’ on either the inshore or offshore game. You can then enter the game and learn how to use it and compete against others all around the world. If you want to compete and keep your score, you’ll need to create a login and a user profile. You also have the option of entering the eSailing World & GBR National Championships, as well as races hosted by Essex Yacht Club.

If you would like to participate in the EYC races please email us at: virtualsailing@essexyachtclub.co.uk and we will add you to our E-Sailing Facebook messenger chat.
