More friggin awesome sailing

Decided to pop in and have a look at "things" at TradewindsYC. It was kinda quiet. I suppose Ahab just cleansed it good after the latest boatshow. One thing was interesting though... this:
Uh, oh... a modern boat
This one's new to me; Not that I am surprised to find new stuff after being away almost since Christmas. It's not just new in SL. It is also new in RL. It is a very modern boat. Looks like a racer but it is big enough to provide that fabeled mega-trailer interior as well...

That's what we call a cruiser/racer. Many attempts have been made to fuse these two into one. Many of these attempts compromise too much and end up being neither. This here is probably one of the best blends available right now. It's gonna be interesting to see if it sticks, or if people deem it too lively for family-cruising.

Friggin awesome virtual sailing

OMG! This is awesome. It actually looks like real sailing... and check the chart feature. It has live blinking lights and all. Wooohooo.
This could seriously take off and change the sailing simulation situation. If there is such a thing :-D Further: How much more fun will those wintery night navigation school session be? Think about it. Way to go...

Make it look like an accident!

This is just sooo funny...
Accident?
Disclaimer: This is not a political blog. I have very little knowledge of the socalled American democracy. I have even less knowledge of a certain Mr. Trump. Actually I am wondering why this is funny, but I just can't stop laughing... Help!

Something beautiful

Just strolling along the piers at Tradewinds. Nothing on my mind. This beauty was moored there. Had to sit down and admire the woodwork...
Port side
A click revealed it is some sort of beta version from ReneMarine. It reminds me just a little bit of the RM8; Another very pretty build from Rene.
Starboard side
I've been kinda offline lately, so maybe this has already been launched. Dunno. Next time I'll go look for at testsail at Renes boat yard. Something this beautiful isn't meant for mooring. It's meant for sailing.
