For all Finn sailors, you can start a sailing regatta with the family or friends, thanks to a new game variation from “Tactical Sailing.”

Plus, as a little present from us, now you can do so with a Finn dinghy! For all members of the Finn class association and readers of “Finn websites,” the purchase of “Tactical Sailing” includes the Coach's Toolbox for FREE.

Coach’s Toolbox - “Take on the Wind”

The Coach's Toolbox is an important extension for the complete program of “Tactical Sailing.” Naturally, all other sailors wanting to perfect their knowledge in strategy and tactics, in order to be optimally prepared for the coming regatta races, can also use it.

The program module, “Coach´s Toolbox,” is not viewed as a playful variation for dealing with the wind. Rather, it has been developed with the goal of being a training program with many combinations for learning how to deal with the wind tactically. With the toolbox you receive over 20 prepared scenarios – ready to run – which you use can practice and expand your tactical and strategic capabilities at any time.

Even Jochen Schumann, Germany's most famous sailor and gold medal winner at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, has been infected with the Match Race “fever.” His first impression of the game: “Actually, I am not a PC-player, but this Match Race on the computer has a high training potential - even for larger yachts. Everyone will immediately be reminded of his legendary “All4One,” with which Jochen is so successful.. Just like on the water, false starts and contact with buoys are immediately penalized in the game; a protest account registers the penalties. Each sailor can register opponents' contact with boats, as well as other breaches of the rules, with the “Protest” key.

The game is available as a CD (44 Euro) or direct download (39 Euro); it operates on almost every computer system (Windows, Linux, Mac). Learn more about the features at under “Game & Tips.”

For those who order the game by March 15, 2013, the Coach's Toolbox (20 Euro) is included for FREE. Send your order by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the subject of “Finn Sailor- Voucher for Coach's Toolbox.”
