Grand Tour: Here We Go Again!

It became awkward, right? My good computer is back since at least  a week or so and I haven’t done any sailing. Bad girl me. :/ Shame shame shame. 😦 But this morning I took a heart, bought a new rez zone finder and finally set sail again …

After a short while I already found a rez area not too far off the Linden Memorial. I guess you can’t rez your shit any closer than at this buoy in Arancione.

And away we go! The memorial with its dysfunctional dock in the background.

I set wind to 11 kts from 270° but ignore the gennaker because I know the route will be narrow and dangerous. So better go slow and careful.

Looks nice and sunny, right? But intrepoid cruising in foreign waters is never romantic but always full of pressure and dangers. 😮 Very stressful.

The plight of the single-handed sailor: After a brief pee break I gotta raise sails all by my lonesome. Pheeew. :/
Snapshot_006
Nice nonsensical off-sim island and rainbow. But it’s gotta be said, shit like this makes a nice memorable waypoint. 🙂

Can’t leave the coast and sail out to sea too far since Corsica’s coastal waters weren’t made with sailors in mind.
Snapshot_008
Typical tasteless SL coastal architecturec and landscaping.
Snapshot_009
Between the EoL and razor sharp beachy islands. Not a nice place to be. 😦
Snapshot_010
That grey braickface house is of questionable taste.
Snapshot_011
Nice way to mark the EoW, using breakwaters as we know them  from RL marinas.
Snapshot_012
Similar to these phantom rocks.
Snapshot_013
Truly astonishing how much empty land there is along the coast.
Snapshot_014
Another good waypoint: Bloodhawks Enterprises Main Store.
Snapshot_015
Coast looks nice for the most parts but is a bitch to sail. 😮
Snapshot_016
Permamoored luxury yacht is a nice way to live?
Snapshot_017
Then in Unsurt sim we get the Debelox race line in sight.
Snapshot_018
That lighthouse used to be Jane’s Debelox Yacht Club …
Snapshot_019
… and I end today’s cruise already there.

Mhm, it’s exactly my last cruise, only in return. Initially I didn’t plan to stop in Debelox again but wanted to go further down south and reach Nautilusian seas again, but … well you know, it’s hard when you’re lazy. And totally overtired. But I know you can hardly wait for more saltwater stories, and I promise this time I won’t wait as long before I continue my Grand Tour. 😉
