Hints and Tips

From my limited experience, the following keyboard strokes are used to control the boat on the PC version. Alternatively you can tap on an onscreen box with a mouse. I assume these commands are replicated by tapping on the screen on a phone or tablet.

The Star Keelboat:

Turn Left: - Left arrow key

Turn Right: - Right arrow key

Tack or Gybe – T key

Let sails flap – Hold space bar for the length of time you wish to flap sails

The Dayboat Racer :- uses the above commands but also:

Hoist or Drop Spinnaker – Tab key (usually a 3 second delay)
