Lazy Sailing

Heigh ho, I'm back again.

I decided to try sailing around the Fruit Islands. If my financial situation changes and I am crazy enough to want to own land again, it could be here in this estate. I would need an estate with a lot of open water. So, a little early reconnaissance doesn't hurt! Plus, I think my bestie would enjoy being in this kind of estate, with so much open sky and water. Still, too early to put all the eggs in one basket, there are other maritime estates to check out.

I was feeling lazy and didn't want to deal with the wind, so I decided to dust off my trusty Twenty, Tania, and go for a whirl using the motor (The sails are up just for show). I chose Tania instead of Renaissance, my Tahiti Ketch II, because she handles shallower water better and I didn't know what to expect.

So I put the throttle around 50% and started off from the Mango Yacht Club. I went north a bit, and then kind of meandering around west and then far north before crashing off the coast of Ziziphus.

It's a lovely estate, and everything feels so serene. I love the attention to detail... things like jumping whales, circling birds, tall ships, off-sim rocks, waterfalls and waves.

This is definitely a candidate for the future residence, unless I become independently wealthy and make my own 500-sim sailing estate! Muhahaha...! :)


  1. Yes! I think Fruit Islands is pretty fantastic also. In fact, I think Fruit Islands and Sailors Cove are the two best Private Sailing Estates in all Second Life.
    If there are more, I'd love to learn about them.!

  2. I'm going to take a look! What about the other USS estates?

  3. Not too many other large estates with lots of contiguous water, by looking at the map. Costa Rica is worth looking into...
