Summer is still with us and you know what that means: sun, beach, sand, waves, water… sailing? Yes, sailing is a time-honored tradition in Second Life® and you can find vast stretches of water to sail across. You’ll get the chance not only to breath fresh air, to feel the salty breeze on your skin, but also to make new friends who share your newfound interest – and last but not least, the chance to go shopping to find just the right outfit to wear aboard.
But don’t assume that shopping and fashion are the only fun part. Once you get yourself a boat, sailing is a thrill reserved for the daring and adventurous folk. And, yes, also the skilled ones, since you need to develop a particular set of skills to master the craft of the sailor. And the language… you need to tell the difference between being abaft and astern. And you need to find a fitting place to sail around without being ejected by security orbs, colliding with ban lines or crashing a kid’s party when you’re only wearing a tiny thong.
The best choice, of course, is to join a yacht club, of which there are several in Second Life. There you’ll find not only a friendly environment, but also people eager to help in your first stages. To test the waters, go to the Rainbow Sails Yacht Club, walk into the office, and take the free boat they offer to get you started. You’re in for a great time!
