Even though I often make use of the intersection of Linden roads in Mowry to rez vehicles for my overland tours of Sansara, I really never check the sim itself. Ever since the Mowry Bay Yacht Club ceased to exist, I kinda lost interest in the sim itself. And also lost contact to the new owner of Mowry, Cate Foulsbane of the MBCC/LCC and ex-Mowrians Elisha Paklena and Indigo Mertel of the East River Community.
Well, yesterday I thought why not check out my old stomping ground, my spiritual home, the legend that is Mowry. And it’s really great what Cate did with that place. It’s homely, cozy and whimsical now, without negating its sailorish past.
That was a nice experience for me. As a former bigwig with the MBYC, back when Saxxon Domela was still at the helm of the club, I have some soft feelings and heavy nostalgia for the place. It was here in Mowry Bay that I organized my first sail races and became an RD. And I guess for a while at least, MBYC was the sole actively racing yacht club outside of MarkTwain White’s United Sailing Sims (USS). We tried and partly succeeded in bringing sailing back home. Back to where it all started.
Well, nowadays the USS are connected to the mainland, via the Blake Sea, and Sansara is navigatory dead as can be. 😦 But we had truly great times in Mowry and what is nowadays known as Mare Secundus, and the Three Mile and East River, and the Sea of Fables and all the other sailable Sansara sims.
