Six Fun Modules That Unlock the Mysteries of Sailing

Sailing Challenge combines the most innovative thinking in the digital education field with ASA’s experience in teaching sailing to create a game that allows players to climb aboard, take control of the tiller in one hand and the mainsheet in the other, and sail off on a virtual sea of fun.

Points of Sail

To become a sailor you need to understand the points of sail – the orientation of the boat relative to the wind. This module first teaches you the points of sail before testing your knowledge with a fun game. If you think you’re already a master then try our challenge mode!

Apparent Wind

This module illustrates apparent wind – the combination of true wind and the wind effect of motion as felt aboard a moving sailboat. Players are able to turn the boat onto different points of sail, as well as adjust the speed of the wind, in order to see the changes in apparent wind.

Trimming

Everytime the boat’s angle to the wind changes, the sail trim should change too. In this module the player learns how to trim the sail for maximum efficiency on the different points of sail.

Tacking & Jibing

To reach a destination directly upwind you have to sail a zig zag course. This module teaches the player how to tack back and forth in order to achieve that goal. The second half of the module deals with jibing.

Right of Way

The rules that apply on the high seas are the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea (COLREGS). This module introduces some common scenarios encountered when sailing.

Docking

Approaching a dock under sail can be one of the most intimidating parts of learning to sail. In this module players can experience different docking scenarios and understand the principles involved so they can dock perfectly every time!

You can then put it all together by racing the clock in the Sailing module >!

The Story Behind The Sailing Challenge App

For help creating the Sailing Challenge App, ASA turned to longtime sailing enthusiast, visionary and founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell’s new educational software development company, Brainrush, worked with ASA to develop this breakthrough educational video sailing game, using a teaching technique Bushnell refers to as “gamefication”. He says, “ASA’s Sailing Challenge combines video gaming technology and educational software, incorporating real brain science in a way that will fundamentally change how people learn how to sail.
