Become part of history: SL Coast Guard Opens Museum. Join us on February 4th at 12pm SLT



In 2005 a group was formed with a strong mission in mind.  The mission was to educate real life safe boating practices to the residents of Second Life.  And since this group formed, it has grown exponentially.  And now in its twelfth year of service to the SL grid, it has become one of the largest, and most active groups of maritime safety of its kind.  But, this was a journey that only the persistent and brave could endure.  

The SL Coast Guard has endured and gone farther than the founder had ever expected.  The members of the group come from all over the globe, and from all walks of life.  This is a group entirely based on Volunteers who like mindedly share the mission to educate real life boating safety.  The stations and substations are located throughout the continents of the main lands of Second Life, and groups of regions that contain large expanses of open waters.

The SL Coast Guard has been active since the inception of the group.  The group has evolved to doing more than just boating.  They employ eight, both fixed and rotor, aircraft as well as having over eight watercraft from motor powered to sailing craft.  Every member is thoroughly trained on the operation of the vessels they use on patrols.  Along with boating and aviation training, their members also may take up dive, search and rescue, medical, leadership,and honor guard training.

On February 4, 2017 at Noon SLT, the SL Coast Guard would like to thank the residents of Second Life for their participation in keeping their mission going.  They would like to formally invite you to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating the years of their involvement in the open waters Linden Labs opened up for all to enjoy.  The dress attire is formal.

Please don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime event.  This is not just a history of the SL Coast Guard, but a history of us, the residents within Second Life.  Speakers to include:  Sanstrom Laxness, Tig Spijkers, and RJ Kikuchiyo.  And presentations of retirement to their retired Admirals and staff will be given out.

The museum is packed with a history of each of the stations, vessels both air and sea, and people involved in their journey.  But, none of this could not have happened if people of Second Life weren’t out on the waters, or in the air.  Along with the rich history the SL Coast Guard has forged, they have been able to create relationships with various landowners, and have been involved with other groups who share similar visions.

A Tour of Second Norway- Sunny Love Holiday Reporting





I enjoy keeping up with the activities of the people and places I do articles on. I truly believe in who and what I write about, and love to see their success. Recently Luciano Liónheart, formally known as Luciano de Prata , informed me that his popular  Luciano Jazz Club & Lounge moved to a new sim named Second Norway. I have heard a lot about this sim, and asked Mr. Liónheart if he would like to meet up and chat a bit about his move and the sim he now resides in. To my delight he was eager to meet, and invited me to his lovely home for tea.

After catching up on some personal things, Luciano explained how much he loved his new beginnings and talked about some of the gems around the 40 sims that makes up Second Norway. “Second Norway is owned by Ey Ren and Mialinn Telling. Gracefully, they have trusted me with most of this sim (the mainland) and a lot of other gems around SN.” Mr. Liónheart, proudly explained.  “Along with my Jazz club, I took over and remodeled the local hotel, Hotel Bryggen along with Bella Bistro, which is SL's oldest restaurant.” 



Of course, I was excited to hear of Mr. Liónheart growing success, but my excitement reached new heights when he offered me a personal tour of the sims. “Sunny, I would actually recommend that you try to stay here as a guest. Our staff is really what makes this amazing!” Needless to say I happily accepted his offer. I was contacted by the Manager of VSN Travel, Kristina Taov, shortly after leaving Luciano’s home and directed to meet her at the Brook Hill Airport for my flight into the Second Norway Airport, the largest one in SL, formed by 8 sims. It is also equipped with a subway/train infrastructure so all the regions in Second Norway can stay interconnected and accessible by train. Despite my fear of heights and planes, I couldn’t wait to get this tour started!



My Fears were quickly put to rest as Kristina guided the luxury aircraft across the clear skies, assuring me all will be fine. Flying was actually perfect because I had a clear view of the sims, and all the wonders it entails. Once we landed, we immediately jumped in a private motorcar and drove to the mainland. I was pleasantly impressed with the landscaping and ocean view. I imaged it looked just as it would in RL Norway.


Our 1st stop was at Hotel Bryggen. The hotel looked like a perfect get away for families and couples alike. “Here tour guests can stay for a weekend, close enough to all the places with weekend activities, such as Bella Bistro Restaurant, Luciano’s Club & Lounge, the Art Galleries, Shopping Mall and Marina.” Kristina explained. “All are accessible from this point. It is possible to sail, ride bicycles or take the train.” We entered the hotel and I must say I instantly started planning in my head when I would have time to return with my group of friends for a weekend of fun.  I fell in love the rustic looking suites they have. It totally made me feel like I was in the RL rustic Norway atmosphere.

Next, we climbed aboard a large sail boat and traveled across the Sailing Sims, passing all the previously mentions activity spots.  I noticed a seafront retreat that I believe would be perfect for lovers to enjoy each other.  Our boat ride ended at Boatel, a hotel for lovers by the water. “A boat is guested during guests stay here so they can sail around all the connected regions. Also there is a small airstrip on top of the mountain if they want to fly as well.” Kristina told me with a bright smile on her face.  Lovers that stay here are truly pampered with all the amenities offered.



Once our boat ride was over, we took a bicycle ride to the top of a mountain. Kristina handed me a glass of champagne and asked me to join her on a hot air balloon ride.  Firecrackers popped off as we enjoyed the cool breeze and spectacular view of all of the sims. I couldn’t believe how well put together the Second Norway sims were put together. Every event, activity, hotels, and venue was so easily accessible with many ways of travel. The balloon ride ended in front of The Bella Bistro Restaurant. I quickly entered to enjoy a hot cup of coffee before I left.



While enjoying my coffee, I asked Kristina what were her thoughts of second life Norway. “This is a place where all your dreams can come true!” she beamed. I couldn’t agree more. There is so much to do, see and enjoy that it is impossible not to have a fun filled vacation. More than one trip would be needed to enjoy all they have to offer, without doing the same thing twice. This is a sim I highly recommend and will return to shortly myself. I could use a vacation and there is nowhere else I would rather be!

Simple Pleasures: Sailing in Second Life – Mackenzie Abbot Reporting





The term “sailing” is a bit of a misnomer, given that it encompasses everything to do with boats, regardless of whether they have sails or not. 


It's a little difficult to think about sailing as a whole, without thinking of millionaires in luxury yachts or retired folks in their narrow-boats.  But then again, there's the freedom of the high seas and the ability to speak like a pirate without getting taken away by men in white coats.  I have had a keen interest in sailing since a friend of mine invited me onto her friend’s boat.  We pointed the boat in the right direction and just kept going.  As soon as she let me have a go at being skipper, I was hooked.  I bought my boat the next day and never looked back.  So which boat should you buy?  Where do you moor the thing once you've bought it? How much does it cost a month?  I decided to find out.

Where Do I Start?

If your sailing knowledge equates to knowing who Popeye is, then you're not alone.  Nobody is born an expert at anything; we all need pointing in the right direction and, thankfully, there are yacht and boat clubs all over Second Life.  If you just want a boat you can jump into and get going with, there are freebie boats in the Marketplace and at Yacht clubs.  One such club is the Trade Winds Yacht Club (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dex/139/48/25). 

They have a few freebie boats for beginners as well as free clothes (including the absolutely necessary Captain's Hat).  However, if you want something a bit more flash than a 2 seater wooden dinghy, then you're going to need some lindens sailor!  However, depending on what you want, and where you look, you may not have to part with that much to a decent little craft.

What Boat Would Suit Me Best?

Spotlight Feature: Explore and Discover, Endeavour Cove - Lukes Lionheart Reporting...

Endeavour Cove


America has a space shuttle named “ Endeavour”. That name comes from good lineage. History buffs might remember something about Captain Cook and his famous sailing ship “The Endeavour”. For those who might not, here is a brief run down. Captain James Cook was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer and Captain of the famous exploration ship “HM Bark Endeavor”. He was the first European to make contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, as well as the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. In short, he was a famous explorer who made many remarkable discoveries. This is where Endeavor Cove derives their name. They, and I, would like to invite you to come “Explore and Discover Endeavor Cove”
