Maryland-based IGS Software is partnering with Dutch company Stentec Software to become the exclusive North American publisher of Sail Simulator 2011 Deluxe Edition.

Developed by Stentec Software, Sail Simulator 2011 Deluxe Edition is designed to present a realistic look and feel of a real sailing experience.

Experienced sailors will recognize the realistic motion of wind, water and waves, as they take the helm of any one of 17 modern racing sailboat classes, ranging from the Olympic 470 and Laser to the 70-foot Volvo Open 70. Novices will discover a simple, inexpensive way to learn the fundamentals of sailing and the vagaries of the wind, long before they step aboard their first vessel.
