* New awards section that will challenge you to learn more and sail faster!
* New fly-by at beginning of sailing courses to give you an overview of the location!
* New navigation arrows to help you find the way to the next mark on a sailing course!
* Totally redesigned menu system making it quicker and easier to learn or go sailing!
* Lots of other improvements to make the app more enjoyable!

ASA’s Sailing Challenge includes six fun, easy-to-use learning modules that unlock the mysteries of sailing - Learn Points of Sail, Apparent Wind, Sail Trim, Tacking and Jibing, Rules of the Road and Docking.

Then, put it all together when you sail around a course against the clock in a variety of different locations including the classic Harbor Tour course, a British Virgin Islands course, a Night Sailing Course that tests your navigation skills, a Tacking Master course that tests your tacking abilities, and more! We offer you the choice of three different boats - the day sailor, the cruising monohull and a beach catamaran. You can also choose between steering with a tiller or with a wheel! All the boats feature a mainsail and a jib, realistic wakes, and their behavior is based on real world polar data. In addition, we've made it easy to look around while you're sailing along - great for monitoring lay lines as well as checking out the scenery! As your sailing skills improve you’ll be able to earn awards for completing challenges in all the learning modules and sailing courses - can you earn the award for completing the Advanced level of the Points of Sail module without making any mistakes?

This sailing app combines the most innovative thinking in the digital education field with the American Sailing Association's experience in teaching sailing to create a game that lets players climb aboard, take control of the tiller in one hand and the mainsheet in the other, and sail off on a virtual sea of fun. When the ASA says the fun starts here, we really mean it!

For help creating the Sailing Challenge app, ASA turned to longtime sailing enthusiast, visionary and founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell’s new educational software development company, Brainrush, worked with ASA to develop this breakthrough educational video sailing game, using a teaching technique Bushnell refers to as “gamification”. He says, “ASA’s Sailing Challenge combines video gaming technology and educational software, incorporating real brain science in a way that will fundamentally change how people learn how to sail.”

  1. Originalcincity-avatar



    Awful graphics and gameplay. I'm a complete novice and completed the game in under an hour. Might have given 2 stars if it had been free ....... nah, no I wouldn't. Waste of money. I really thought an organisation such as the ASA would have been able to put together something better than this. You should be deeply ashamed of yourselves.

  2. Oz Wanders-avatar

    Best sailing app out there. Learned a lot and the sailing is realistic. The only complaint would be the lack of head sails. Please add these into the game. Thanks

  3. Lorraine Roberts-avatar

    Lorraine Roberts


    Just purchased it but noticing that I have to exit program and go to menu to move forwards through the levels. It's a great learning tool but this issue is getting on my nerves already. I just want to continue not have to close app, 're open and them find my new level. If they can sort this I would definitely give it 4 to 5 stars. In about 30 m8nd I have learnt so much already!

  4. Christopher Nash-avatar

    Christopher Nash


    Less than mediocre, boring and of. Very little educational value. There's so mush potential for an app of this type as an educational tool for navigation, weather sail types and trim but this app fails on all of them.

  5. Alex Gilgur-avatar

    An excellent app to work on sailing skills during the quarantine, on the airplane, while waiting for takeout, and when preparing for the tests

  6. Ryan Stephenson-avatar

    Ryan Stephenson


    I'm enjoying so far and haven't encountered any bugs. I think it would be nice to include a right of way test or challenge. Also would be good to have a challenge where you try to avoid accidental jibes.

  7. Dustin Hilliard-avatar

    Dustin Hilliard


    Stuck, just like every other person said. The app is fine when it works, but you'd better have one thing in mind when you start to use it. It is NOT fixed like developer says. I'll update my review when it is, do not trust developer comments.

  8. Richard Gil-avatar

    As a developer and beginner sailor. This is a good app to learn basics. Would love to see more sailing scenarios to try out, like stormy weather for example.

  9. Matt Lefevre-avatar

    lots of fun, it is difficult for me to read the small font though

  10. Tom S-avatar

    Simple, but thorough. This isn't so much a game as it is a thorough introduction to the basics (and review of) sailing. :)

  11. Eric Berger-avatar

    This really has the feel of sailing. I also took the in person ASA 101 course, and they are pretty similar in material.

  12. Danny Hamilton-avatar

    Fun and actually has a good, usable menu!

  13. C Eller-avatar

    Superb app to learn sailing fundamentals before hitting the water. I watched a Learn How to Sail YouTube video by Josh Post (the least you need to know in about 20 mi utes), and got this ASA Sailing Challenge app. PERFECT for sailing beginners like me to learn everything: Points of Sail, Trimming and sail efficiency, Tacking, Jibing, etc with great practice sessions on boats in different conditions, and training and testing. You also discover you need patience!

  14. Bob Ritchey-avatar

    The education is useful but the controls are problematic. In many sims, there are two things that must be controlled with corresponding areas on the screen that must be manipulated. For most PCs, this doesn't work as well as it could. Perhaps using keyboard controls as an option would be better.

  15. Stephen Sadowski-avatar

    Stephen Sadowski


    This is a good learning experience for novice sailors, however the app currently (as of 3.0.9) has a couple of issues: 1) at the end of the apparent wind module, tapping 'continue' does nothing, effectively leaving you to 'try again' or be stuck. 2) When bringing up the in-module menu screen and tapping 'main menu' causes the app to freeze at the loating screen. ASA seems very responsive to these issues, so I hope I can bump the rating once they are resolved.

  16. Sig Wolf-avatar

    Decent primer, but *very* dishonest presentation. Both the screenshots and the description lead you to believe things like there are multiple boats and a dolphins available with your purchase. There are not. Buying this program offers *1* boat, with the option to pay for a few additional, and pay for added dolphins. Lots of apps on Google have in-app purchases, but to use the store page to imply they are included in the app price is just plain wrong. Considering refund.

  17. Tim Spencer-avatar

    Good graphics and lots of fun. It would be nice if there were challenges that covered more distance and took more time as the current ones get a bit repetitive after a while. Maybe even just have the practice area 10 times bigger so that you can just have a leisurely sail.

  18. Rainer Santos-avatar

    Not working on Huawei. Before I had a Galaxy S7 and worked fine

  19. Steve Habbi-avatar

    Excellent simulator. This actually taught me the nuts and bolts of sailing, much better than books. I actually took my family sailing around the Greek islands for a week with little more than what I learned from this app. I don't necessarily recommend doing that but it worked for me :)

  20. Nils Meier-avatar

    Exactly what I was looking for. I'm brushing up on theory from trimming for winds to right of way, in a fun gaming kind of way. Suggestions: wind strength options, waves, tiller touch area higher in screen and wider for better control.

  21. Google User-avatar

    Great app but I would like to see/purchase a big sailing catamaran as well, a Lagoon for example!

  22. Christopher Blackmore-avatar

    Christopher Blackmore


    This app really helps to understand and learn the main aspects of sailing whilst not being in a boat. These things are quite baffling on paper but make sense here. And all the while you are having fun!

  23. Dylan Hall-avatar

    I was skeptical of this app when I saw it, but it is actually both fun and excellent training for sailing basics. It was worth the $4 personally, a good buy

  24. Derek p1l0t-avatar

    it's great to have a 3D simulation to learn on. If a picture is worth a 1000 words than a 3D SIM is worth 1000 pictures.

  25. Karl Durfey-avatar

    Seems realistic, nice graphics and attention to detail. But needs to be restarted every time I try to go back to the main menu.

  26. Jacob Kipp-avatar

    Same problem as everyone else. Freezes between pages, clicking continue, main menu etc. Have to restart the app everytime you finish a module. Samsung Note 9 latest update.

  27. Chris Jennings-avatar

    Super fun. Controls take a little getting used to, but the open sailing is fun.

  28. George Banis-avatar

    Honestly, it's decent but not worth it. You can find the content online for free and the simulator is ok but it only kept my attention for maybe a couple hours.

  29. Mubashir Sabir-avatar

    Very responsive support for this app. They fixed problem in 1 day and have updated the program to functional status.

  30. Frances Vanicelli-avatar

    Frances Vanicelli


    I love this. It has already helped me to understand sailing terms and wind direction. Currently I only have it on my phone. Is it possible to download it to my Kindles also?

  31. Robert Slaton-avatar

    Great game. Helped me with recalling sailing langage. Good support when problems do pop up.

  32. James Hutchinson-avatar

    James Hutchinson


    Nice app to stay brushed up on sailing terminology and maneuvers.

  33. John Parker-avatar

    Graphics are not working properly. The boats appear to be underwater with only the top of the mast sticking above the water.

  34. Scott Fennell-avatar

    Enjoyed the app, it helped a lot with learning points of sail and which tact. Please add more.

  35. Ryan Fontaine-avatar

    since the new update, the app isn't working properly I can't see the sailboat for points of sail or its choppy and won't move

  36. Paul-avatar

    as a new Sailor studying ASA 101, this APP is a terrific complement study aid. It presents the information in a fun and interactive way, I couldnt put it down! Great job!

  37. Chris De kock-avatar

    Great game. Only lasted 4 hours though. Completed it A TO Z very quickly.

  38. Nicholas M-avatar

    Fun apo. enjoy the lessons part. helps me remember things with the interactive nature of it.

  39. Linc Franse-avatar

    It's a good simulator great for beginners and fun for more experienced sailors

  40. Marcus Schwab-avatar

    the graphics are all glitched up on my phone. can't see anything

  41. Philip Stimpert-avatar

    Philip Stimpert


    This is a fun little way to learn about sailing. here in the middle of PA it's a little hard to get sail time, so this app feels like a good way to build a bit of knowledge base for when i can get to the coast.

  42. ryan Harris-avatar

    I have been charged for this app and tried to install it 3 times and it will not install.

  43. this is the end-avatar

    Sawyer the G-O-D


    Just what I needed to get help me wrap my head around how sailing works hands-on. My only complaint is that I can't sail a ketch! Maybe in a future update :)

  72. Evan Larsen-avatar

    Best sailing game for learning how to sail on the market. I downloaded this a year ago and it wasnt as good. But they made a lot of improvements and it's so polished and well designed now. I'm happy I came back to it. Keep up the good work!!!!

  73. Ian McManis-avatar

    Great app for learning if you can't get on the water. The only issue I have with it, is the sensitivity of the controls are just a touch too high. When I go to take my finger off the screen, the meter will jump a short way.

  74. Jack Fine-avatar

    Loved this game, but something has changed. I'm not sure if it was an update or what, but now I can't get the game to load. It gets to the opening screen and freezes. If fixed I would give a 5.

  75. A Google user-avatar

    Good for us newbies trying to figure this out! Would be nice if there was a streamer on mast pole to help with wind direction. Other than that I think this is an excellent teaching method until I get my own boat!

  76. David Rosenlund-avatar

    David Rosenlund


    Love this app! It's giving me the basics before I go out on the water. This way I'll make less of a fool of myself.

  77. Doug Bourks-avatar

    This game is great. I look forward to see what continues to develop with it. I dont understand how to get three stars on the tacking and jibing or the trimming modules though.

  78. Lucas Parrish-avatar

    For the lack of good sailing games that not only entertain but also teach, this one is really good. Just as challenging when you are sailing. I've taken many boating courses. Lot of this is a good review.

  79. Chris Stokes-avatar

    Great graphics and learning. My kids love it, and it is the only exposure to sailing (besides expensive trips) as we are landlocked in Nebraska.

  80. BE Knoll-avatar

    I'm looking to start sailing. Going to the marina tomorrow! I feel this game will help me know how not to sound like an idiot and more importantly has given me a strong understanding of the practical dynamics and interactions between critical factors such as wind direction, sail position and boat speed.

  81. steve heathcote-avatar

    steve heathcote


    Would be better if had telltales to react to on both sides of the main and head sails. Otherwise great for keeping up my rusty sailing experience.

  82. Warren Gooch-avatar

    I'm new and have never sailed but want to. This app has taught me so much. The terminology and the general idea of the mechanics I've learned was worth way more than a few dollars :)

  83. Jordan Wrenn-avatar

    Wonderful game. I'm a new sailor and it's helping me understand the relationship between sail position and steering. Great for beginners.

  84. Brian L'Escargot-avatar

    Brian L'Escargot


    I love this simulation because it very effectively teaches anyone eager to learn about sailing how to do so while incorporating the rules of the sea in an easy to follow step by step process.

  85. Pop Lyle-avatar

    I wish there was a little more to it but it's extremely educational and lots of fun. Five stars!

  86. D D J fusco-avatar

    you'll learn alot. I hope they add on more boats like catamarans

  87. Richard Walsh-avatar

    Fun easy keeps your skills up when you can not get on the water

  88. jan bentley-avatar

    Great. All sections taught me something I did not know. Love jibe and tack

  89. Rodd Taylor-avatar

    It gives me the bit of confidence I need to further pursue my interest is learning to sail an actual vessel.😁

  90. A Whitney-avatar

    Why does this app need permissions to access my files? Photos, contacts etc?

  91. Travis Butler-avatar

    Best farm sailing game I'm the world! Just signed up for my ASA 101 and you can't beat

  92. jordy ai-avatar

    Great innovation for an app that actually teaches sailing basics better than any or most books.

  93. A Google user-avatar
