Once again I’d like to give a big shout-out to the Leeward Cruise group. LCC is by far the oldest and largest active sailing group in all Second Life, and I’d wager it’s the most fun too. Chaos Mandelbrot and Kittensusie Lander are the sailors in charge of this ongoing major regatta, and each week they get tons of support from a growing group of appreciative skippers.
This Tuesday (March 3) Chaos Mandelbrot’s LCC fleet will do it all again. The fleet will collect on the docks of Seychelles Isles Yacht Club in Glacis Isle. The club is in a full sim, so skippers can rez boats with ease, and accommodate a large, rowdy crew. 🙂 The fleet will take off at 5:00pm SLT sharp, so get there early!
(What? you don’t have a boat?
Hey, no problem!!
No one is left on the dock!!)
That’s the course for the March 3 cruise, above.
The fleet will sail South along the Eastern shore of Nautilus, then take a turn around the Fastnet Light Memorial in the center of Blake Sea. They’ll next tack South and West to skirt Nautilus City, finally turning North through Brenda’s Channel. From that point it’s a straight shot up to Knaptrackicon and Danshire Yacht Club, the gateway to Dire Strait.
If you are new to SLSailing and and don’t know the routes yet, don’t worry. LCC has you covered. 🙂 Diamond Marchant will give you a Navigation HUD that includes all the waypoints, so you can’t get lost! (Make sure you ask Diamond about her super sail-designs too 🙂 )
