Regatta: The Board Game!

A Recent Cleanup of the Spinsheet World Headquarters revealed "Regatta" a sailing board game circa 1968! The game does an impressive job of transferring actual sailing strategy into board game form. The speed your boat moves is dependent on the point of sail your boat is sailing across, there is a pre-start portion of the game where players attempt to establish the best position to cross the starting line, and there is even an advanced version of the game which takes into account right of way rules and the heading of each yacht.  Instead of community chest, and chance cards to throw a monkey wrench into the game, there are puff cards and wind shifts. Let us know if you've played this game before and whether or not it can capture any of the excitement of sailing.
