In this new version of Virtual Skipper 5 players take the helm of luxury sailing boats, racing across the open water of more internationally renowned ocean courses than ever before, including Qingdao, the sailing venue for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. A sophisticated wave animation model replicates tidal movement and wind flurries, forcing players to adapt whilst racing. Other variables include day and night settings that affect climatic conditions and visibility, all helping to reproduce a realistic sailing environment. Real life yachts in the game include the Offshore Racer and the Melges 24. Both vessels behave differently on the water, meaning players must master key racing tactics to navigate and perfect the courses. Virtual Skipper 5 lets players compete at some of the most prestigious global sailing events, including Auckland, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco and Qingdao, now widely recognised as the recent sailing venue for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where the Great Britain sailing team won six medals including four gold
