Beneteau Cup 2020 Opens As A Virtual Regatta 1

Beneteau fires the starting gun today at a virtual version of the Beneteau Cup regatta. The free online strategic game, which is open to the public, takes place on the Virtual Regatta platform, which has been a hit with sailing enthusiasts around the world during coronavirus lockdown.

The race takes in a 500nm virtual loop around the Balearic Islands, starting and ending at Port Ginesta in Spain. E-sailors must plot the best course while navigating weather systems to get the best out of their boat.
