Peter Isler explains how this class works.

In this class Peter will be showing tips and techniques for weather routing while playing the RealSail game.

We've been working with the folks at the RealSail online sailing game to add features to help sailors practice their weather routing strategy. Its really fun and a great way to provide real life practice. RealSail can send sailing data to Expedition Navigation and Sailing Software and has sailing modes features like "vmg", "hot vmg" and "optimum vmc".

You don't need to be able to use Expedition to have fun and learn playing the game, but it does take things to the next level for Expedition users.
