A solid update for this new version!
For the eSailGP challenges, the start rule has been adapted. In the case of a premature start, your boat is now slowed until it reaches the last position, getting closer to what happens in real navigation.
Furthermore, the F18 is now more stable and easer to navigate.
The start and finish line have also been revised; you can now differentiate from each other.
Finally, many upgrades have been made, notably on the limits of the navigation zone. Have fun!

Good, but annoying bugs
The game is great when working, but any bugs or lag completely ruins it. I’ve been booted out or had my race disturbed by bugs many times and it’s so annoying when your in a race. I think those who haven’t had bugs and got to the top of the leader board are lucky! That’s not racing.
Also I would be nice to use the F50s again, they’re just sitting there with no racing for them. Sometimes I just practice race them just for the fun. I wonder if they’ll return when the sail gp series starts again.
Nice looking but needs work
The absaloute disregard to how long it takes boatspeed to build from standing still I epically out. Watch how many races have someone take a good lead from starting slightly behind bu coming in with full boat speed. Big disadvantage to someone who knows starting tactics. It’s even more silly in the bigger boats when a boat with sails flapping can get a better start sheeting in on starters gun than one coming in at full tilt.
Also I am fed up with people tacking right in front of me and me being penalised because they are going to slow to allow a safe tack iirc if I have to avoid someone taking in front of me it used to be them that was in wrong.
A nice game but a little working polishing off and tweaking the above and a few other things would certainly get this into a much higher star category but having to change tactics to suit game and not what would work on real races is a bit meh :(
World Champs sadly a sham
This game looks good, and, whilst arcadey, is fun enough. The rules system is awful though.
This game was chosen for the inaugural eSailing World Champs, and held a 2 week playoff regatta for those that pre qualified. During the end of this regatta, the last 3 days in particular, the game suffered from massive lag spikes causing most boats to randomly teleport or randomly steer off course 5-10 times per race. This completely destroyed any hope for many competitors to achieve a fair result, for example, going from 1st to 3rd due to randomly luffing heat to wind on a run. I personally did not finish the 33 race playoff as my last 10 races were ruined by this bug.
The developer in no way acknowledged or responded to this bug, despite being presented video proof and accounts from numerous players. This makes the results a sham, and the developers and World Sailing should be ashamed of this lack of a fair play for such a prestigious event.
