Weekend Races – Enjoy what looks like three sunny races this weekend!

Hello Pioneers,

Here are this week’s races! We’ve changed up the structure of the long race this week, we hope you like it!

Thank you to all of you that signed up to test our new in-game race building tools last week. We’ll get in touch soon.

Remember, if you don’t want to sail alone, you can look for a crew in the Multiplayer Forum, there are plenty of sailors looking for crew members or boats to sail with. Perhaps some of you more experienced sailors could team up with newbies and spread the knowledge?
