This is the 1997 web at it's best, and I'm absolutely here for it.

Great timing – the online Newport–Bermuda Race finished yesterday! Should we start a MetaFilter version?

Oh, I'm gonna capsize sooo many yachts.

Oh, wait, it looks like there's no way for the boats to capsize or take damage. Meaning the failure conditions would be getting grounded, becalmed, or going the wrong way.

Are SailNavSim and Sailonline.org related or separate?

Doesn't look like it.

I'd be up for a MetaFilter regatta.

The physics engine seems pretty simplistic. I wonder if you could “cheat” by sailing into a storm and gaining a speed boost without any danger.

I started the Newport-Bermuda race on sailonline.org a few days late and spent a couple of boring days moving pretty slowly but did complete it in just under 4 days. Unfortnately the one other skipper I was really competing against was asleep at the wheel and sailed off into the south Atlantic instead of giving me any competition near the finish line. I'd be up for doing another one either with anyone else as a crew or against anyone.
