When Virtual Meets Reality: The MOD70 KRYS Ocean Race Game
Would you like to go ocean racing from the safety of dry land? To compete against some of the world’s best skippers of the MOD70 circuit, to battle on equal terms against them, and against the elements? An exciting collaboration between Multi One Design SA, the company which manages the Multi One Championship and BeTomorrow, leading specialists in developing web, mobile and TV applications, now means that internet users will be able to indulge and share their passion through the innovative new adrenalin pumping speed sprints of the MOD70 Speed Match game, or the more strategic test of the VIRTUAL KRYS OCEAN RACE game.
You choose, you decide, go for it!
Gamers or sailing fans should take note of the following dates:
From 13th June to 7th July, test your abilities on the MOD70 SPEED MATCH game. Get right to the heart on the waters off New York with the superbly realistic Manhattan skyline looming as a backdrop, as you take to your weapon of choice, a MOD70 to duel with your chosen skipper, Steve Ravussin, Michel Desjoyeaux, Sebastien Josse, Yann Guichard or Sidney Gavignet. Anything can happen over the three minute, head to head sprints. Try and beat their score!
And on July 7th it is time to stock up and put on your virtual foul weather gear because at 11:00 CET you can set out to race the North Atlantic on equal terms with an entire active community of players. Get into full race mode using real time weather, actual positions of the race skippers as you race from New York to Brest. You choose the strategy and build a hand to trump the choices of the racing crews on the actual KRYS OCEAN RACE game. And the winner will make the rare, money can’t buy, transition from virtual to reality, getting the chance to sail on board a MOD70 during the European Tour in September. Over to you!
