After several months of Crowds, Kiosks, Cruising, and Competition, the major fundraising events of Sailing4Life came to a final climax with the July 13-14 RFL Weekend celebration.
Please give a rousing WOOT for the 2013 Sail4Life/ Relay For Life Team! Here they are~~~

S4L’s camp installation on RFL SPIRIT and RFL REFLECTION was rather fantastic. The classic maritime build re-created New York’s Fire Island lighthouse, surrounded by open grassy spaces and traditional wooden docks that looked out on a full sim of sailable water.
The design was beautiful in its own right, but it also served as the backdrop for a boatyard-full of great yachts and finely-crafted maritime items, all donated by the wonderful artisans of Second Life. Any sailor could pick up a trailer-full of great gear by simply dropping a bid at one of several dozen kiosks on the sim. And of course, all the proceeds went to the American Cancer Society.
Major kudos gotta go to RJ Kikuchiyo for his vision and masterful design for the installation. Diamond Marchant also took a major role arranging the displays, communications, and sailing regi0n, and the RFL judges gave Diamond the Third Place Award for Design! Woots!!
But the biggest applause this year goes to all the great sailors, estate owners, and builders that supported S4L. The whole community joined in to help make the fundraiser a great success. Thank you!
