Rainbow Sails YC Cruise #146

Well, it’s not far down to paradise, at least it’s not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

It’s not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Yesterdays (18th of july 2015) cruise was a very nice sail, provided by Ai to us. It was a special tribute cruise to all of Blake Sea, and just sailing, how it should be. We ALL remember the griefer attacks some weeks ago, and how horribly they messed the sims for sailors and aviators up, the same. Now several weeks after the “bombing” we are finally free again, to sail without issues.

We started at Foligno, I decided to take the Faith, my Bandit IF. Quron, still a novice when it comes to sailing, took the challenge, and helped me weighing out the sails, and controling the jib while I was steering and controling the main.

The tricky thing with the IF is …. finding the fleet after everyone got under full sails. Cuz this lovely boat, but it is realistically slow. One of the reasons I love her so much, and yes, again HER – cuz she is my Faith!

Well I said without any issues … some are still there, but griefer aren’t the problem. I hope the couple on the boat had some adult fun, cuz for PG I would be pissed, if I had to get out of the wind to get by…

I am still way behind the field, like 765 meters – just a guess … but I know.. there will be another Rendevous Point, and they will wait for us, cuz they all know.. IF is hard work – so thank you very much Kovu, and Titus for strolling along, while waiting for me and Quron!

Under full sails on the last leg, close to the Second Norway Airport. If nothing will go wrong… we will arrive in abit … that was what I thought, but the sims had a little speciality for us, a free flight-ticket, back out of Second Life on the last sim, before we would have arrived at the Rainbow Sails Marina at Vindar …. but ALL of us where stubborn enough, to get back on track and arrive the way we should have arrived, with and on the boats!

Thank you Ai for providing this cruise and for reminding us how good the good times can be. Yesterday really got me thinking, how great friends are and how imporant it is to stand together, no matter how rough the prims are bouncing.

My last words today, are a special thank you to Finnvard. He made a precious video, I want to share with you.
