THE SCIENCE BEHIND VIRTUAL REALITY SAILING
- Practice for better retention: Sail simulation in an immersive Virtual Reality creates muscle memory by engaging mind and body – enhancing learning and retention, similar to pilots training in simulators.
- No cost of mistakes: This is a safe environment to practice in without risk —a more relaxed learning environment.
- Accelerate your online + on-the-water training: VR is the perfect complement to other practical classes and enables faster skill acquisition and better retention.
- Simply, it’s just FUN!! This is a good excuse to get a Quest VR headset (plenty more “super cool” games and features on Meta Quest). If you’re new to VR, you’ll be amazed at the realism!
