Sailaway is a sailing simulator on a global scale.

Just like in real life sailing from the US to Europe will take several weeks
The boat will continue to sail when you log off
Check in every now and then to adjust sail trim, change course, set a reef or enjoy a sunset

True sail trim

Sailaway II:
Experience the real time effects of trim line adjustments on sail shape and the behaviour of the boat
Get hints on how to optimize the trim
In Sailaway III this is taken to the next level.
There are no hints, but:
The air flowing around the sail is visualized and follows the curve of the sails
The smallest trim line adjustment will immediately have an effect on the air flow visualization
Learn, practise and experiment to find the optimal settings for your boat

And in Sailaway III you can also:
Change trim lines and deck fittings to control the sails however you want
Or apply liveries and deck layouts shared by other sailors
