COUCH-BASED SAIL­ING

Soundings - - Dispatches -

The Amer­i­can Sail­ing As­so­ci­a­tion has re­leased an up­dated ver­sion of its Sail­ing Chal­lenge game, where play­ers can take a vir­tual keel­boat through its paces — with­out leav­ing the liv­ing room. An ideal tool for stu­dents prac­tic­ing for the ASA 101 Ba­sic Keel­boat Sail­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the game works on both iOS and An­droid de­vices. The lat­est up­date im­proves the qual­ity and re­al­ism of the game, and also in­tro­duces fea­tures that in­clude a night-sail­ing nav­i­ga­tion chal­lenge, tiller ver­sus wheel op­tions and a tack­ing master course. Other mod­ules in­clude train­ing on sail trim, points of sail, right-of-way rules and dock­ing. $4. asa.com/sail­ing-chal­lenge-app
