Introducing the eSailing World Championship – the official eSailing game of the World Governing Body for the sport of Sailing
In partnership with the leading digital sailing platform, Virtual Regatta, World Sailing launched the eSailing World Championship in May 2018. The inaugural season resulted in 170,000 unique players from 74 nations battling it out over just 3 months for a place in the Live Final Playoffs.
Aimed at everyone from expert sailors to sports gamers, the eSailing World Championship is helping World Sailing to inform, engage and inspire the next generation of sailors and sailing fans. The goal is to bring the excitement that comes with harnessing the power of nature to the phones and tablets of fans around the world.
Sailing demands constant inputs and an acquired skillset to manage the relationship between the boat and the forces of nature. These unique qualities are all captured accurately in this virtual world and enable sailors onshore, and fans without access to sailing equipment, to become engaged and inspired by the excitement of sailing.
The in-game Sailing School provides a clear explanation of the sport and a new and effective learning tool for better understanding the strategies, tactics and terminology of sailing. Governed by the World Sailing Virtual Rules of Sailing, the eSailing World Championship closely matches the real-world rules and formats that govern the sport.
