I think the mechanics of sailing are quite well thought out - the star map idea is inspired.

This is exactly what people need to do with the ocean

Really quite neat!  I especially like the star map bit; really nails the "keep-land-in-sight/check-skies-at-night" style of pre-compass sailing.

How to sail, and the objective is explained on the game's page.

(you can also find win/mac/linux + assets there)

Kept getting lured by those damned sirens, but otherwise very fun and great sailing mechanism.

Was not really sure what to do, but the graphics are pretty nice. I included it in part 2 of my Public Domain Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look :) http://youtu.be/EmwIs9vWlzE
