Virtual Racing

St. Helier Yacht Club eSailing Virtual Racing



With yacht racing suspended for the foreseeable future, we know that you will be missing the competitive and social engagement with fellow members. Never fear, we have the perfect solution!

The yacht club in partnership with the Royal Yachting Association will be utilising the online virtual e-Sailing platform, Virtual Regatta Inshore.

This online sailing simulator is affiliated with World Sailing as well as Sail GP. Virtual Regatta delivers high-intensity online racing, that is not only compliant with the Racing Rules of Sailing, but is also free!

Within the App, there is a Sailing School section for you to practice your boat handling and understand the game features before entering your first race.

The Virtual Regatta Inshore App is free to play and is available on PC, Apple and Android devices.
