Published in Amstrad Action #21


Sailing is a new and brave attempt at a yacht-racing simulation. You control a yacht for the country of your choice, against another country's yacht, in a series of races around a set of three bouys. Your country starts at the bottom of the league table, and you must beat each team to get to the top, Slow, uninteresting action means it doesn't have very wide appeal.
