ACA Cup Day One

The ACA 2011 Cup First Round hit the water today!
The weather in Fruit Islands kindly cooperated, encouraged by a sim restart or three. :-)
The initial competition phase of the Cup Regatta consists of solo time-trials;
the fastest skippers from Round One will advance to the Semifinals Round,
where the fleet will split into three groups...

ACA33 Round One Pitch Problem

If you attended any of the practice rounds or official time-trials for the ACA33 Trophy last week over in Breadnut,
you probably noticed it. Several of the race boats seemed unbalanced in the water, with their hulls pitched forward or aft.

Sansara's Southern Passage!

... A new waterway, the ”Southern Passage,” just came on line.
It’s a 10-pack of very thoughtfully-planned coastal sims on the Southwest side of Sansara,
linking the Bay City water in Luna Palisades with the eastern boating areas
that connect through Abbotts and Rosedale. ...

Kudos to Leeward Cruisers

... I wanted to put in another plug for Leeward Cruising Club.
Cate Foulesbane, Kittensusie Landar, and Chaos Mandelbrot
are doing a wonderful job coordinating several cruises each week.
A few dozen people usually show up, and they can sail any boat they chose,
or join another skipper as crew...

Floundering

... Last week the world was supposed to end.
Many laughed when nothing happened,
but I guess they weren't focused on SL sailing.
The SL grid did end for us. It became unsailable this week,
and Linden Lab evidently failed to notice.

Well kids, Trudeau's BeachCat is back on the water with a new name: HepCat!

RJ Talks about Lit Beacons

... If you know RJ Kikuchiyo, you know he has a true passion for lighthouses.
He should; for thousands of years those monuments were the vigilant beacons that lit the way,
guiding sailors across treacherous seas and returning them home safe again. ...
This week RJ Kikuchiyo began a discussion series about light houses
that explains this all much better than I ever could...
