Hi!

I'm a french skiff sailor and software developer, and I made this game on my freetime:
http://www.playtacks.com/

A realtime sailing simulator, in your browser. Didn't tried to be realistic, my goal is to maximize the gameplay. So you can lock your angle to wind (ENTER key) and just trigger the tacks with SPACE key. A recent browser is required (chrome, safari ; firefox being too slow for the moment) and a decent internet connection (low latency).



Hope you will enjoy it!

Also: it's open source, anybody can grab the code and install it on his own server.

Hi,
Little update on the game, I added an interesting feature for newcomers, the "magnetic VMG". Time to try again! Approve

Come and show me your tactician skills!
