VR Regatta is a sailing simulation that requires the player to perform movements needed to sail a small sailboat. Educational and relaxing, the majority of gameplay in VR Regatta is designed be played seated. Even during the more active parts of the game, which involves racing, the experience is not physically intense, and instead is designed to be somewhat soothing. However, VR Regatta does qualify at the lower range of a Walking equivalent, instead of Resting, because you are often required to switch from one side of the boat to the other to properly balance out the boat for maximum speed. If sitting on the ground, this literally means shifting physical positions. That, in combination with managing the rudder and sail line, did require some degree of physical movement to successfully play the game.
