Explore the Ocean From Home

ave you ever wanted to explore the world's oceans and sail to faraway lands but don't have the time or the boat to do it? Now you can with Sailaway.

Have you ever wanted to explore the world's oceans and sail to faraway lands but don't have the time or the boat to do it? Now you can, without ever leaving your desk! Sailaway Ocean Sailing Simulator will allow you to sail between islands, or around the world.

The simulator offers a world-wide ocean sailing experience, calling on users to raise sails, pull winches and adjust trim while underway on a full scale model of the world's oceans. Explore new places, or sail in familiar waters and track your progress on the world map, or zoom in close to see small coves and bays, complete with buoys and lights to help navigate safely. Wind, fog, rain and more are all simulated according to real-time weather data provided by NOAA, so check the weather before you head out to know exactly what conditions you'll be sailing in.

Even novice sailors will be able to learn the basics with the help of the computer to get your boat underway. Don't want to spend a month crossing an ocean? Set a course and let the computer help navigate while you are offline!

Sailaway will be available for download on November 3rd. For more information check out their website at www.sailaway.world.
