Passionnés de voile et de régates, Activision a pensé à vous ! Relativement éloigné de la simulation, ce programme vous met à la barre d'un magnifique voilier

Not much difference between this and the C64 version, except, perhaps, slightly clearer graphics.

Hardly a mainstream subject, but an entertaining game nonetheless. Worth trying if you're after something different.

Die Grafik auf der Spectrum-Version ist leider etwas schlechter als die der getesteten Commodore-Fassung. Der Sound, eine Art Ballade, ist wohl Geschmackssache. Zu schwerem Wetter paßt er jedenfalls. Sehr spannend sind die Action-Sequenzen, in denen man gegen einen Konkurrenten antritt Und bei schwerem Wetter geht natürlich die Post ab! Die Handhabunh ist einfach. Hier muß man auch nicht allzulange Anleitungen durchackern. Und das Game wird so schnell nicht langweilig. Das Gewinnen ist nicht so einfach, die packende Action-Sequenz regt jedoch immer wieder zu einem neuen Angriffsversuch an. An der hervorragenden Simulation wird auch der Action-Freund seinen Spaß haben. Mich hatte es jedenfalls für einige Zeit an den Bildschirm gefesselt. Achtung! Langzeiteffekt!

An atmospheric and surprisingly playable boat racing game.

Again, it's only graphical differences which separate this from the other versions.

You still get some points even if you're soundly beaten and at the end of the week you can alter your boat design to match the weather forecast for the next week and try again.

Most of the time I kept getting disqualified for straying outside the course or I saw the opposition disappearing towards the horizon leaving me feeling like a lone yachtsman. The only major complaint I have about these types of simulation is that I never seem to get anywhere. There's no instant gratification to make me want to keep on playing.

[Re-release] It's not bad though, appealing more to football management sim fans than arcadesters, I'd suggest. Essentially, then, we're talking Very Limited Appeal Indeed.

Das Programm hat ein gutes Konzept, macht auch Spaß, verliert aber nach einer Weile von seinem Reiz. Ein Tip für alle Landratten, die ein etwas ausgefallenes Sport-/Geschicklichkeitsspiel suchen und natürlich für Segel-Fans.

You wouldn't think it would be possible to create an interesting game from the idea of a sailing simulation - and you'd be right! Whether you're a salty old sea-dog or a scurvy land-lubber, you'll find Sailing about as much fun as a violent bout of chundering over the side in a force nine gale. Originally a full-price Activision title, this one should never have been re-released on budget - it deserved burial at sea.
