    "Really nice app if your into anything that needs wind to prosper. If you are into kites, sailing, surfing, etc then you want to have a good idea of what the wind will be like. This app gives very detailed wind reports that allow you to effortlessly plan out your event."

    "Sail Racer adds an extra layer of data for any sailor with it's real time tracking navigation and weather information. It has tons of features, so even sailors with boats that have instruments on board can fill in the gaps in their equipment, while boats without any instruments can use the app for accurate navigation.

    "I have never been on a yacht, I have no idea what information the sailors might need and what this app could do. Literally, I have zero knowledge about it. Based solely on the reviews, DragQueen (what a name for a sailing app!) is decent and it does what it's supposed to do. Important part (for me it is always important) is that it's free"

    "I absolutely love the nautical charts contained in this app. I was rather impressed at the quality of all things, considering the monetary station of this application as well. I haven't really tried out the sonarchart yet, but I'm pretty excited about it!"

    "I loved using this app on my old iphone so I thought I'd love using it on android, but I was wrong. It's clunky, it's slow, and it crashes all the time. I don't know if it's my phone (galaxy s7), or what, but it needs work. "

    "Doesn't allow you to race and doesn't have yachts in it. I would have loved to at least have a race mode in this app. Features are incredibly limited for $5 bucks. If you want a barebones racing simulator, I guess this will do."
