Miwha Magic

Although it’s difficult to compare different boat designs and regatta formats,
it’s definately not hard ranking Miwha Masala’s sailing skill and her love for racing!
In multiple sailing events over the past two years, Miwha had a spot reserved on the winner’s platform.
She can sail pretty much anything that floats, and deserves a medal as Outstanding Sailing Diva of 2010-2011. :-)

In case you have any doubt about that, I think her performance
in the 2011 ACA Trophy Regatta proves my point. ...

Bolt Bashly wins 2011 Elite ACA Trophy!
by Jane Fossett and Amythest Wingtips

Way back in May, 35 sailors signed-on for a two month elimination ordeal
that would determine the best ACA 3.0 skipper in Second Life.
After a long haul that tested the mettle of SLSailing’s Best of the Best,
on July 24 only two skippers remained standing, undefeated:
KazumaHs Destiny and Bolt Bashly.

Today, in a remarkably display of sheer tenacity and raw sailing skill,
Bolt Bashly took the prize and sailed away with the 2011 ACA Elite Trophy.

Northern Light: A Beacon for North Sea

Two days ago I wrote about the new North Sea region in Fruit Islands.
The expansion adds twenty new open-water sims to Fruit’s extensive waterways,
and it promises a wealth of future sailing opportunities for racers and cruisers alike.

Today I’d like to follow up, and talk about the lighthouse that forms the centerpiece of North Sea. ...

Trudeau Epicurus Cat-Boat

Trudeau’s new Cat-Boat is named EPICURUS, and it’s dedicated to Epicurus Emmons, a much-loved SL sailor who recently died.
Epi was the Commodore of Fishers Island Yacht Club -SL, and he was much loved and respected by sailors grid-wide.
I knew Epi for four years, as we traded jokes, discussed life, and plotted race courses…

Last year Nomad Zamani and Glida Pilote got together and crafted Nemo,
a six meter keel-boat inspired by the Laser and Flying Fifteen.
Well, Nomad and Glida are at it again;
they recently launched Nemo 2, a truly innovative pocket-racer.

Nemo’s creators kindly agreed to talk about their new build
on MetaverseSailing, and their interview is posted on the website...

Sailing Epicurus

...the new Trudeau Epicurus is a nifty cat-boat that combines the simplicity of a single sail with the beauty and accuracy of Trudeau design.
I’m still looking at how the boat handles; there are lots of fun features to test out. That could take a while,
so I thought I’d post a few basic Epicurus performance numbers and impressions so far...
