The sail simulator enables you to travel to any place in the world. Whether this is 10 miles from the shore or all the way to the other side of the world.
You will have to deal with all elements of mother nature: sun, rain, wind and storm. The situation at sea will be just as unpredictable as in real life, because Sailaway uses the actual weather conditions for the position of your sailboat.
So if there is a storm in the real world, there will also be a storm in the virtual world. Likewise, you could get stuck in a calm for days if you navigate into a high pressure area. This makes following the weather forecasts important, just like it is with real sailing.
