|Virtual sailing at its best?|
Sailing a boat like this makes it even better. Whereas many other virtual boats claim to be realistic, this one virtually is... The feeling is so authentic. Probably because the water is so close. The sailing sensation is absolutely present.
Variating wind with puffs and shifts is one thing. Add luffing sails and winddrift and some people think that's it. However, more than half the weight of a boat is in water, so let's not forget what happens below the surface... Waves & currents? Both with local variations.
All three in one package? Wind, waves and currents, - and all with local variations... that kind of realism is unique to those boats which support the WWC windsystem. If you want realistic racing, then WWC is the way to go. Very few boats are able to top this level of realism...
I love this shot. It has so much sailing in it. The boat, the sails, the trim, a tad of seaspray and the intriguing background with so many promises of interesting places to explore.
