    So I guess this is a photoshop? I can't find any reference to it on the web.

    Unfortunately, not a real game :)

    I visited Brendan (owner of SEA) in Australia a few weeks ago, and he had this on his wall.
    He had a friend who worked at EA Sports who made it up for him.

    I figured it was something like that. I can't see anywhere enough market for a sailing video game to justify the programming and marketing costs. Anybody remotely interested in it would probably rather do the real thing.

    There already is a sailing PC game called Virtual Skipper (VSK5). There is quite a large community of keen virtual sailors of which many are keen actual sailors. They just can't get enough of sailing.

    Also a very keen Oz community. If you want to sail an 18' skiff or Tornado cat here is the place to go.

    PS I built the 3D model for the Tornado

    I thought it looked like Brendan in the picture. He's still off playing with the Finns and I assume preparing another Olympic campaign.
