A complete VR sailing race experience from both water and aerial perspectives, including graphic explanation, captain narration, and a near collision all with the beautiful Chicago skyline in the background.

Columbia Cup Regatta is a 360/VR experience, that immerses the viewer in a competitive sailboat race off the Chicago coast. Perspective from the boat deck makes the viewer feel as if they’re actually on the boat, especially during a particularly tense moment of the race. Aerial footage and motion graphics offer a dramatic overview of the entire race course. The captain’s voiceover sheds light on the allure of sailing, highlighted by the background of Chicago’s skyline on a beautiful day.
