Atanua Marina

Over the past two years, the Linden Department of Public Works has greatly expanded the opportunities for mainland sailors. In Sansara, they upgraded Sea of Fables with new racelines and content, and then added roughly three dozen new coastal waterway sims to provide Bay City with both North and South passages to sailing areas in East Sansara and Heterocera.

The efforts in Nautilus have been equally impressive, with the development of Dire Strait, a new passage to Corsica, and the addition of many coastal waterway sims at strategic points to make extensive cruising possible.

Leeward Cruise July 10 2012

Satori (aka the Southern Continent,  the Japanese Continent, or Mãebaleia) is now getting attention as well. Satori, like Gaeta (and I suppose like Australia too) has few inland waterways, and it’s coastal routes were cluttered with impassable builds. Well, that’s slowly changing as new water sims are added on both the East and West coasts.

 

Leeward Cruisers applauded this change and made several excursions to Satori in recent months. Well, on Tuesday July 9 LCC’s at it again with a cruise that will start from the Atanua Marina and end at DYC in Knaptrackicon.

Kudos go to Abnor Mole for his very nice Atanua Marina build that will be LCC’s Tuesday launch point. It’s located in the Northwest corner of the sim, and it’s horseshoe-shaped, with a large, protected dock area facing south.

The rez point is thoughtfully done as well. It encloses the entire marina area, but then extends a good distance south over open water. Even a large flotilla should find ample space to stage a start there.

One of the nicest things about the Atanua Marina is the long rez time; autoreturn is set for 30 minutes there, so there’s no need to rush if you need to make last-minute repairs to your boat before you get underway. 🙂

Come cruising with Leeward on Tuesday at 5:00pm SLT, and see if you agree Atanua’s a nice addition for sailors. If you like it, be sure to say thanks to Abnor Mole and Michael Linden next time you see them! 🙂

  1. It will take a while until we can circumnavigate Satori in its whole but slowly we’re getting there, YAY for the moles! YAY for Michael!
    I’ll so be there tonight at 5 PM to cruise with the LCC.

  2. In the above post I forgot to give credit to Chaos Mandelbrot. He’s the uber-Duck for the Tuesday Leeward Cruises, and he figured out the chart and gave me a heads-up about Atanua Marina.
    Woots Chaos!

  3. Yeah, but why mentioning Chaos specifically? I’m quite sure he knows that he’s our all-time favourite anyway. Don’t want his little birdie head to explode, do we?

  4. I think you are mistaking me for Benny’s exploding penguin tip jar.
