Days of Sail: Wind over Waters takes you to the sunny Greek islands and puts you right on the deck of a speedy and lavish sailboat, giving you the chance to experience the tension-filled atmosphere of a racing regatta event in the tropical paradise of the Mediterranean Sea. It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur or adept navigator. Your objective here is to experience your own personal sailing story while competing against the times of other sailboats, but also against the blowing wind and your own sailing knowledge and abilities.
