ASA’s Sailing Challenge includes six fun, easy-to-use modules that unlock the mysteries of sailing. Learn Points of Sail, Apparent Wind, Sail Trim, Tacking and Jibing, Rules of the Road, and Docking. Then, put it all together when you sail around a course against the clock in the Sailing module.

Sailing Challenge combines the most innovative thinking in the digital education field with ASA’s experience in teaching sailing to create a game that lets players climb aboard, take control of the tiller in one hand and the mainsheet in the other, and sail off on a virtual sea of fun. When the ASA says the fun starts here, we really mean it!

Fun & Good Info

I found the app a good tool to learn the basics (wind/ boat relative direction) & sailing around is fun. I did purchase all product add-ons however the add ons did not become available. There is a button to "restore purchases" but that does nothing when clicked. I had to buy (for a 2nd time) an individual boat add on & that worked. So definitely some bugs- perhaps stay away from the purchase all option until a new version release.

I would rate this a bit higher if the add-ons you purchase on the laptop or the phone actually work. Nothing changed on laptop, and while I purchased all on the iphone, only the Benetau got activated. I was looking for wind, for the most part. So out of all the individual purchases, less than half work. I will have to resolve this another day.
