Recently in Toastmasters public speaking club Greg gave a speech about sailing and virtual reality. The speech was titled “A better sailing training” and you can find the speech transcript below:
Sailing brings some of my greatest memories. Fresh air, sound of water splashing on the boat. Breath taking sunsets. Great adventure: struggling with the powers of nature - wind and water.
Sailing can be truly amazing.
We are happy to share that we will be attending Vision Summit in Hollywood this year :-)
If you are there, make sure to say “Hi!” :-)
Greg will be representing MarineVerse, please get in touch with him via Twitter.

Have you ever been on a boat and didn’t know how something is called?
Maybe you said: Can you pass me this wihajster? or Can you pull this?
When on the boat, you want to use sailing nomenclature to communicate quickly and precisely.
Melbourne based MarineVerse’s team recently shipped “Point of Sail” - a virtual reality experience designed for Google Cardboard.
By taking advantage of 360 degrees immersive environment and interactivity, the app makes it easy and fun to master points of sail. It offers a short, yet fully functional experience. You will be placed on a boat and surrounded with helpful banners showing names used to describe wind direction. When you look at a banner, you will hear a short explanation.
It’s a well known fact, that virtual reality is best experienced first hand in VR goggles, but if you want to have a quick look at the app, there is a short video:
