Hydrofoil Generation puts you in the driving seat of state-of-the-art hydrofoils, including the high-tech, high-speed F50s used in SailGP, modelled with unprecedented accuracy to replicate the exhilarating experience of ‘flying’ over the water at speeds of nearly 100 kmph. Take control of your boat and fine-tune the sailing mechanics of your foils to reduce drag and increase your speed. Customise your craft to overcome the demands of the changing winds, sea conditions and currents as you compete against up to 10 opponents in thrilling multiplayer racers in exciting locations such as Bermuda and Chicago. Thanks to Hydrofoil Generation’s demanding and realistic simulator mechanics, the fine line between speed and capsizing is a continual threat and will not only push your sailing skills but your boat to the very limit.
Realistic sailing and foiling simulator.
Accurately recreated boats such as J40, Jx50 as well as the official SailGP F50 catamarans and liveries.
