I haven't played with sailing simulators in a long time. And while "virtual reality" may make them look more realistic these days...I just found them all to be cerebral enterprises, versus the "gut feel" of sailing. Kinda like trying to have a coffee tasting session on the computer, no matter how good the software is, it just can't convey the real thing.<G>

Assuming you Dad doesn't view this forum, is there any price range you are looking at? Does he own a boat, or crew with someone regularly? Maybe there's some kind of sailing gear or gizmo that he might have a better time with?

If not that, I'd say some of the classic books would make better entertainment than a saiing simulator. I think there's a post someplace about recommended titles, if not I'm sure folks would chime in.

I'm starting to look for a christmas present for my dad. My dad loves to sail of course and I want to get him a sailing simulator for his computer. So can anyone here recommend any good games? I just want something really realistic and with good graphics. Thank you guys so much.
