WARNING TO SAILORS.
this will not be an easy point and click race series. We will follow the full ISAF (2009-2012) rules. The official calling notice will be in the http://slsailing.org forum. The race wind will be set at a tactically challenging angle and speed. The sims themselves will be, by their very nature laggy, there is not must we can or would want to change to this. These sims are people’s homes and their interest must be paramount.

The team racing will consist of a skipper and three crew. You may have 2 back up crew member to avoid problems with absences from the series.
