Wind to win, play with the RC44 fleet and win a trip with the Islas Canarias Puerto Calero team
The Canaries Tourism office has started a world wide campaign to support and sponsor the Islas Canarias RC 44 sailing team on their Sea Dubai RC44 Gold Cup regatta that starts next week, November 25.
In addition to sponsoring the team and under the motto "Wind To Win", the Canaries Tourism office invites sailing enthusiasts to support their favorite team and prove that they who have the best fans, have the best wind.
Just by playing on www.windtowin.com and registering (it takes 30 seconds) you could be eligible to win a free trip with the Islas Canarias Sailing team to one of their international races in 2010. The winner of the game will be announced on the 28th of November.
All you have to do in order to play the game is to log on to www.windtowin.com and follow the instructions. The game consists of simply blowing into your computer microphone. If you don't want your boss the find out you are playing during work, just click on the corresponding option and play with the "Space" key of your keyboard. The website will then translate this air into wind knots and make the boats move.
During the actual Sea Dubai RC 44 Gold Cup, the wind generated by the game players will activate huge fans which are located in the port of Dubai and a huge screen will show the support messages that fans will leave on the website. This way, the teams will be able to literally feel and see the support that their fans have sent directly from their homes. And fans will be able to feel that they are not only on the virtual world but also on the real regatta.
