Great for a beginer.

:
I loved this when I was just learning the basics! I tried to learn sail placment from books and the web but this really made it click. Also a great tool to show pasengers how to sail before they get aboard.

5/5 stars
Nice app for the sailor that's still learning

:
I'm still learning to sail, and this app is a handy reference when I don't feel like I've got things trimmed properly.

5/5 stars
SailSim Brilliant!

:
I teach sailing at the Collegiate level, this app is fabulous!

My requests; wish I could save and load different boat settings. Would also like that to adjust some of the deep app system settings, like yacht or dinghy mode. Using boat data files could also begin a database of boats- add a module for your users to upload the data for you!

Would also love a PC or Mac version so I could use it on the big screen in class! Maybe fix the wind and rotate the boat when there is no compass...
