The SL America Cup is coming: the Free Spirit Cup
The only match race competition in SL today.
Claim the cup for you and your Yacht Club (or group)
Free Spirit Cup
1851. As the schooner, named America, passed the Royal Yacht in first position, and saluted by dipping its ensign three times, Queen Victoria asked one of her attendants to tell her who was in second place.
”Your Majesty, there is no second,” came the reply. That phrase, just four words, is still the best description of the America’s Cup, and how it represents the singular pursuit of excellence.
Are you ready to take this challenge in Second Life? Race against your fellow sailors and take the Free Spirit Cup to your Yacht Club?
The Free Spirit Cup is organized on the same concept than the America’s Cup. Each team will claim the cup for their own club. There is no second. Only one winner that will take the cup home till the next race.
