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.

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.
