Virtual Regatta - Join the Fun as RFYC Racing Goes Online!
Published 15:04 on 2 Apr 2020
A couple of our members have been making the most of the current lock-down by testing out Virtual Regatta. It's an online game for sailors, allowing you to sharpen your sailing skills and put your racing tactics to the test. All you need to take part is a phone or tablet (iOS or Android) onto which you can download the free app.
Here's your two-step recipe for success:
- Use one of the above links to get the game from the store for your device. Did we mention that it's free!
- Now use the code [CODE-GOES-HERE] to join RFYC races.
*NB: If the line above still has [CODE-GOES-HERE] and not an actual code, it's because we haven't got the code ready for our races yet. We'll post the code here ASAP so keep checking back until we do! You can still race until we get a code - it's just you'll be racing against the general population and not specifically your fellow RFYC members. But it's still good practice right?
- Watch the videos below to learn how to get started.
