Spotlight - Sailing the Linden Seas - Lacy Muircastle reporting ....

Sailing is a passion bordering on an obsession for many both in RL and SL alike.  The sailing community in Second Life is a tight knit family who has done a phenomenal job of making sailing possible in SL.

Coastal Waterway 
Avid SL sailors and social sailors alike may be interested to know that at the beginning of October the Seychelles Isles (formally the Irish Estates) made a historic move to a new location which connects directly with the Mainland. This new location merges with the Coastal Waterway near the Northeast outflow of Dire Strait, offering residents of the estate many more open water sailing opportunities. From that location it’s a quick sail North to Corsica, South to Blake Sea, or Southwest to Bingo Strait, Nautilus City, and Satori continent.

Seychelles Isles Yach and Country club
It was in October of 2011 that IrishGent Resident launched Irish Estates, a residential community in Second Life. This estate includes both custom built and resident owned homes, along with extensive lush landscaping. All sims are surrounded by water with numerous amenities for the residents including: a yacht club, a dance club, regular entertainment with both live and dj music, and a sim dedicated to surfing with complimentary surfboards.

At the time founder and creator of the estate, IrishGent (a keen sailor himself both in RL and in SL) stated, “I am so pleased to be able to offer the residents of Second Life a home that is truly a community. From the moment I came to Second Life I dreamed of building a community. And, to see it come alive is truly a rewarding experience.” And now almost two years later, IrishGent and his management team are proud to announce a name change for the estate to the Seychelles Isles. IrishGent explains his rationale behind the name change “I, along with my management team, decided that we wanted a name that better encapsulated our vision of what the estate encompasses and the result is…. Seychelles Isles. The Seychelles out in the real world are a magnificent collection of islands, surrounded by turquoise seas, exquisite coral beds and unblemished sun kissed beaches. You will agree with me that Ericaanne Hastings, our resident landscaper and designer, has done a fine job of replicating paradise on our estate.”

Fulfill your fantasy, allow yourself to transcend pleasure in an exotic island atmosphere, come and live in exclusive luxury in harmony with nature – your private piece of paradise in Second Life.

Or pop along to the Yacht club where you can rent a slip for your yacht and from where you can sail the Linden seas to your hearts content.
