The eSailing World Championship is now available to play in 11 different languages via the Virtual Regatta Inshore game on iOS and Android devices as well as desktop platforms.

Over 169,000 eSailors from 74 nations participated in the first season of the eSailing World Championship. The introduction of 11 new languages expands the games reach even further with the game more accessible than ever.

Languages supported in the game include:

  • French
  • English
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • German
  • Dutch
  • Russian
  • Chinese
  • Japanese

Philippe Guigné, Founder and CEO of Virtual Regatta, commented, "We have a global community of eSailors that is continuously growing. Our simple gameplay coupled with the support of 11 different languages successfully caters to our community and we are already seeing new gamers as a result of our work."

World Sailing CEO, Andy Hunt, added, "In partnership with Virtual Regatta, World Sailing is continuously striving to engage and inspire millions more to participate in sailing in all its form.

"With the inclusion of languages such as Russian, Chinese and Japanese, we have a unique opportunity to continue the growth of the Virtual Regatta Inshore game and overall participation in the eSailing World Championship."

The 2019 eSailing World Championship was launched in January. The season will run for eight months and features daily challenges, in-season PlayOffs, a Finals PlayOff and a Live Final in Bermuda at the end of October.

The Winter PlayOff concluded earlier this month with the top 100 qualifying to the Finals PlayOff. Spring and Summer PlayOffs will follow later this year before the top 1,000 fight for a place in the Live Final during the Finals PlayOff. The top eight will qualify for the Live Final where they will aim to be crowned eSailing World Champion and claim the $10,000 USD prize fund generously donated by Virtual Regatta.

Alongside the regular eSailing World Championship, World Sailing has announced two National eSailing Championships in Great Britain and Switzerland with further nations and formats to be announced.
