Virtual Skipper is back!

Considered to be the ultimate in nautical simulations, Virtual Skipper is back with a new edition which will delight all sailing fans and highlights a magnificent campaign dedicated to the America's Cup, the most prestigious of all the sailing competitions.

With 32nd America's Cup - The Game, players take part in thrilling regattas aboard world-class boats on a sea surging with realism in single and multiplayer games.

32nd America's Cup - The Game throws you in at the deep end of this supreme challenge that takes place in Spain, just off the coast of Valencia. The city is faithfully reproduced as the America's Cup port, which will act as host to the participants in the competition. Take the helm of one of the 11 official challengers and win the Louis Vuitton Cup, where you will be up against all the boats in the competition. Victory will give you the chance to take part in the 32nd America's Cup competition, and to challenge Alinghi, the famous Swiss boat and current holder of the trophy.

The America's Cup may be the fantastic new highlight in this latest edition of Virtual Skipper, but the other classes of boat have not been forgotten!
