I know, I know…I’m supposed to be slaving over a set and choreographing a dance or twelve, but I live in a beautiful sailing community and every once in a blue moon I need to shove aside the dancing and mellow out floating around the neighborhood.
There are all types of boats in SL, I have worked my way through some over the last 4 years, finally settling on a Loonetta 31. It’s fully customizable and super easy to sail. I don’t race, so I don’t need a super sleek, HUD-o-rama boat. An added bonus…it’s only 31 prims!
I don’t sail as much as I should. The people who own Gulls Wing offer classes, which I rarely am able to attend due to Euro/US time conflicts. I tend to hit things….land, buildings, buoys and sink. My old boat sank all the time….it even came with a lovely holding on for dear life animation on the overturned hull.
The resident creator of Gulls Wing hits me with an IM every once in a while…um…Winnie…we do offer classes….in case you want to take one…..Bob…
There are races, group sails, regattas….since I’m so accident prone, I tend to head out on my own to explore. It’s funny….I keep finding friends who sail that I never knew sailed! Path and Lotta….Pan… 🙂 There’s quite a community in SL.
One of my favorite things to do is to sail from my house to Toby’s Juke Joint. I can er….park….moor…dock(?) my boat right outside the bar and settle in with some fantastic blues. I have no idea why they flee when they see me coming…it’s been ages since I sailed right INTO the dance floor…..*mumbles*
If you’ve never been sailing….if you feel like faffing (Nai britishism) hit me up and I’ll take you out 🙂 Pack your suit and your swimming animations. We even have a sim where you can go diving!
