Woots! The Tuesday Leeward Cruise on February 18 was pretty fantastic!; Kudos go to Diamond Merchant who hosted the fun event. Diamond subbed forAdmiral Chaos Mandelbrot (who came a bit late), and as usual Bennythe Boozehound provided a stellar LCC soundtrack.
The weather was great, and nearly all in the flotilla made it to landfall on Diamond’s docks.
Well, Admiral Chaos is doing it again on February 25. This week the cruise is from Seychelles Isles to Second Norway, and it’s a celebration of Ragnarok, the Viking Apocalypse. Big thanks to IrishGent Resident and Mialinn Telling for their help setting up this week’s LCC event!
OK, I know Ragnarok symbolizes the end of the world, and its perhaps not intended to be a happy event. Nonetheless, many online pundits predicted (with considerable dubiosity) that this final Norse conflict was set to go off on Saturday, February 22. 🙂
I’m happy to announce we all made it through that date. Given the legendary sailing skills of the Norse over two millennia, the passing of Ragnarok last weekend seems a damn good excuse for a Leeward Cruise!! 🙂
Adm. Chaos think so too! Here’s his Cruise Manifest:

It’s the end of the world (again) and we sail to the fabulous Second Norway to celebrate.
Good news, though: after the world is annihilated by a bunch of ornery ancient gods, it’s supposed to be restored as an idyllic paradise. So we got that going for us. So don’t expect any more crashing!
