Abstract: To-day America's Cup catamarans have many innovative features such as hydrodynamic foils and rigid wings instead of soft sails. They are designed not only to float but also to heave and "fly" over the sea surface. These new features require new skills that the crew must acquire. The work presented in the paper deals with this problem and describes a foiling catamaran simulator designed for training purpose. The simulator is designed primarily to interact with the in-training team and to feedback the crewmen with realistic physical reactions in an immersive scenario; secondly the simulator gives the opportunity to compare different race strategies and to select the most promising one. The main features of the simulator are illustrated, some graphical evaluations are displayed and results are discussed.
