Peter Isler explains how this beta program works.

In this class Peter will be showing tips and techniques for weather routing while playing the RealSail game.

We've been working with the folks at the RealSail online sailing game to add features to help sailors practice their weather routing strategy. Features included interfacing with Expedition Navigation and Sailing Software and automatic sailing modes like "vmg", "hot vmg" and "optimum vmc".

Using this game with Expedition gives a "real life" experience that is great fun and good practice. However you don't need to have any weather routing or Expedition experience to play the game.
