Realistic simulation

Sailaway aims to bring the most realistic sailing simulation possible.

Global scale

At first glance, sailing can be a bit intimidating. The complex names of trim lines and sails, or how boats sail against the wind. There are several tutorials in Sailaway that teach the basics of sailing. From steering at the various courses to the wind to the naming of sails and trim lines


The good thing about a simulation is that nothing can go wrong. Feel free to practice until you get the feel for the wind and the position of your sails to make the boat move forward. The simulation can assist by pressing the "helping hand" button. and it can perform certain tasks for you, so you can focus on one aspect at a time.

Enhance your skills

Once you get the hang of it, there is a lot more to learn that even more experienced sailors don't always know. Things like why should a sail be open at the top? Or why should the curve of the sail be deeper when there is less wind? And how can you achieve that? Sailaway has tutorials for these things and can give suggestions along the way. By making sail trim optimization visible and explained, everyone can become an expert.
