So the clubs are closed and we can't race for real. What online sailing games and suchlike are there to keep us amused?
I have heard of Virtual Skipper which seems to be all big boats. Anything dinghy oriented?

I have Sail Simulator 4 from about 15 years back (Stentec software, distributed by Ubisoft).  So bored I may re-install it.  You might be able to find a free download on line by now.

Boats included are Flying Dutchman, Soling, Laser, Oppie, Valk (Dutch 6m keelboat thing), 33 foot cruiser racer, VOR 60. 

I have distinct memories of downloading a Tornado and an IACC boat for it too.  Spinnakers were a costly online upgrade, probably all gone with the passage of time.  I painted the FD to look like my own.

That should do for an evening of social distancing.  Not sure I can take another evening of playing Monopoly with my kids.

National 12 3344, Europe 397 and Mirror 53962 all gone with regret
