The Ocean Race Starts

Fellow SL residents, did you know that ppl in the meatspace are imitating our favourite avatar sport, sailracing?

No, really, they do! With “real” physical wind and the most advanced simulations n shit.


Faced with some serious weather on the opening stage of Leg 1 of The Ocean Race and with the pressure of expectation much on their minds, the day to get out there and do it finally came on 15 January 2023 as teams counted down the minutes before the start of the 1,900nm leg to Cabo Verde.

Matt Sheahan was on the dock in Alicante and talked to some of the key players shortly before the start of the 32,000mile race to find out their last thoughts on what lay ahead.
