KONA Radio Plays “Sailing” by Christopher Cross
[8:01] Liv Leigh: hi yuukie
[8:02] Orca Flotta: didn’t know old Robbie is still active …. and doing so well
[8:02] BeeJee Boucher: hi Orca
[8:02] Orca Flotta shuts her trap
[8:02] Timothy Scarborough: ao on
[8:02] Orca Flotta: (muffled) Hi Beej
[8:03] Surfwidow Beaumont: well i guess we can start
[8:03] Liv Leigh: hi hans
[8:03] Surfwidow Beaumont: ok well thanks for coming
[8:03] Hans Zinnemann: Hi Liv
[8:03] SLSF Race Wind Setter shouts: Updated race wind parameters.
[8:03] Surfwidow Beaumont: this is as you can see based on a one design windsurfer used in the olympic games
[8:04] Surfwidow Beaumont: for many years the windsurfers were long and thin
[8:04] Surfwidow Beaumont: some of us remember the mistral IMCO
[8:04] Blood Butuzova: hey joepie we can’t keep meeting like this
[8:04] Ravenalon Coage: gogo go go go
[8:04] Blood Butuzova: noob
[8:05] Epicurus Emmons: sssst
[8:05] joepie Korobase: πŸ™‚
[8:05] Surfwidow Beaumont: in the last few years there has been a global shift in windsufing design – higher volume and stubbier
[8:05] Blood Butuzova: hehe not you joepie ;)))))
[8:05] Surfwidow Beaumont: this is actually how they look in RL πŸ™‚
[8:05] joepie Korobase: oh :/
[8:05] joepie Korobase: πŸ™‚
[8:06] Surfwidow Beaumont: i felt from the first time i entered SL – as my name shows – that windsufing with real winds was needed
[8:06] Orca Flotta: yay
[8:06] Surfwidow Beaumont: adn in the end i thought noone will satisfy this need the way i wanted it
[8:07] Surfwidow Beaumont: i have windsurfed for years and i think – thasnks to extensive testing with armchair that we have the balance right now
[8:07] Kittlyn Cuttita: Hi..
[8:07] Jumpy Broome: I’m here Izabella. Thanks!
[8:07] Surfwidow Beaumont: unlike tako sailing you will notice a few major differences with this board
[8:07] Surfwidow Beaumont: the first is you lean against the wind with the sail
[8:08] Surfwidow Beaumont: the sail is held mostly by harness lines – in this instance purely cosmetic
[8:08] Surfwidow Beaumont: windsurfing sails move very little when planing
[8:09] Surfwidow Beaumont: thats just the way they are all power is created from the COE or center of Effort
The crowd
[8:09] Ravenalon Coage shouts: one questions and sorry but we go to see it on action?
[8:10] Surfwidow Beaumont: so the only way around this was to have a static rig managed via a wind vane and HUD
[8:10] Flight Band: All Go
[8:10] Surfwidow Beaumont: this gives it a raw feeling very elemental
[8:10] Surfwidow Beaumont: no frills
[8:10] Yuukie Onmura: hey abella
[8:10] Surfwidow Beaumont: like the real thing
[8:10] Abella Beck: ooops
[8:10] Surfwidow Beaumont: the second issue was sailor
[8:10] Abella Beck: sorry if I pushed anyone πŸ™‚
[8:11] Chad Sawson tips his hat to Isabella
[8:11] Surfwidow Beaumont: you can change sides using the page up and page down kys
[8:11] j3rry Paine: skip
[8:11] Surfwidow Beaumont: keys*
[8:11] joepie Korobase: hi jz πŸ™‚
[8:11] Avatar frozen.
[8:11] JeanCarlo Kepler: Does it affect the balance ?
[8:11] Surfwidow Beaumont: this at first may seem uneccessary however you will quickly realise the benifits of this
[8:12] Surfwidow Beaumont: no not in this version
[8:12] ameronk Allen: why is the board so wide
[8:12] Surfwidow Beaumont: but
[8:12] Surfwidow Beaumont: this is not to say that shifting sides is not tactical cos it is
[8:13] Surfwidow Beaumont: it is as the original board
[8:13] Surfwidow Beaumont: thats how they look
[8:13] Armchair Binder: the board is wide to be a replica of the actual Olympic version
[8:13] Surfwidow Beaumont: my text may be jumbled – lag sorry about that
[8:13] Hpathe Boucher: Nemme can you move out of my head?
[8:13] ameronk Allen: how is it controlled
[8:13] joepie Korobase: lol
[8:13] Surfwidow Beaumont: shifting sides is important for the following reasons
[8:14] Surfwidow Beaumont: 1. you will be sailing a lot closer than you ever did with a tako
[8:14] Surfwidow Beaumont: and you can tactically move to avoid someone
[8:14] Ophelia Elswit: Hi πŸ™‚
[8:14] life Cabaret: HI
[8:14] Abella Beck: we can ask questions when surf is donw
[8:14] Orca Flotta: Hi Oph
[8:14] Abella Beck: done
[8:14] Surfwidow Beaumont: 2. at the marks a shift can make a lot a difference
[8:15] Surfwidow Beaumont: 3. it makes sense to have the wind behind you leaning aginst the wind
[8:15] Orca Flotta: Hi life
[8:15] Armchair Binder: the controls are similar to Tako; up/down=trim ; left/right=steer ; page up/down=shift yourself from one side to the other
[8:15] Surfwidow Beaumont: if you do not sail in this way you will become confused
[[8:15] Surfwidow Beaumont: there is a little tail sink set when you are off the plan when turning
[8:16] Surfwidow Beaumont: when planing this rises like the real thing
[8:16] Orca Flotta: cool
[8:16] Surfwidow Beaumont: the board and rig are mod
[8:16] Surfwidow Beaumont: i caution aginst changing the sizes of the board and sail texture
[8:16] Surfwidow Beaumont: as this is opne design
[8:17] Orca Flotta: lol
[8:17] Surfwidow Beaumont: you can change the textures of the baord but this has loads of colours built in and color charts are supplied
[8:18] Charlz Price: Surf when will it be available for purchase
[8:18] Surfwidow Beaumont: the sound effects of the board are authentic i even rattle my monofilm sails to get a little rattle when planing
[8:18] Orca Flotta: who’s the manufacturer of board and rigg in RL?
[8:18] Surfwidow Beaumont: just wanted to get and introduction out of the way
[8:18] Fiona Haworth: /hug charlz
[8:18] Surfwidow Beaumont: ok
[8:18] Fiona gives Charlz a big hug.
[8:18] Surfwidow Beaumont: Armchair can field questions about how it sails
[8:19] Surfwidow Beaumont: is he here
[8:19] Johannx Speculaas: hi Chad
[8:19] Armchair Binder: It sails very easily; Easy=Fun
[8:19] Hans Zinnemann shouts: Does it capsize Arm?
[8:19] BeeJee Boucher: lol
[8:19] Fairie McCarey: welcome back Johannx
[8:19] Johannx Speculaas: thansk
[8:19] Armchair Binder: this version does not capsize
[8:19] Abella Beck: I’ve sailed it a little too
[8:19] Surfwidow Beaumont: come up on the stage ARM
[8:19] Abella Beck: I LOVE IT
[8:19] Chad Sawson: Hi Johannx
[8:19] Epicurus Emmons: does is shadow?
[8:19] Surfwidow Beaumont: arm and abella and beejee
[8:19] BeeJee Boucher: i nevber saw a board capsize???
[8:19] Liv Leigh: does a board capsize.. i think people fall off right?
[8:20] Armchair Binder: I have been her crash test dummy ; LOL
[8:20] Liv Leigh: at least..i would
[8:20] BennyThe Boozehound: yea Ive fallen off a few
[8:20] Orca Flotta: oh yes, they can capsize alright BeeJ
[8:20] Surfwidow Beaumont: windsurfers dont capsise you either get catapulted or you drop down into the water
[8:20] BeeJee Boucher: lol
RSX Windsurfer
[8:20] Armchair Binder: No capsize on this version; no explosions either and no beer holder ; LOL
[8:20] BennyThe Boozehound: but never used a harness before
[8:20] Millie Thompson: lol
[8:20] JeanCarlo Kepler: darn
[8:20] Orca Flotta: crap 😦
[8:20] Surfwidow Beaumont: so no point really as most olympic sailors do not fall off πŸ™‚
[8:20] BeeJee Boucher: i can say its fun
[8:20] Hans Zinnemann shouts: Are there any organised races planned?
[8:20] j3rry Paine: NO BEER HOLDER :(((
[8:21] Liv Leigh shouts: PROTEST
[8:21] Armchair Binder: Surfwidow will add extra features depending on the popularity
[8:21] BeeJee Boucher: i even bought my own startline to have racewind
[8:21] Surfwidow Beaumont: wind shodowing is uneccessary
[8:21] Surfwidow Beaumont: as you will discover
[8:21] Liv Leigh: does it have an ashtray?
[8:21] Chaos Mandelbrot: votes for herring holders
[8:21] Yuukie Onmura: lool
[8:21] Surfwidow Beaumont: the proximity of racing is sometimes so tight
[8:21] Orca Flotta: OMG
[8:21] Abella Beck: I would like to point out the handy camera hud she added
[8:21] Armchair Binder: They are aimed at FUN sailing ; not complicated/complex sailing
[8:21] Epicurus Emmons: did you write the sailscript yourself or is it based on tako 2.1?
[8:21] Surfwidow Beaumont: that it could cause more problems than it saolves
[8:22] Abella Beck: allows you to pan around effortlessly
[8:22] Abella Beck: I love it
[8:22] Armchair Binder: they turn very sharp, like the 3.3 tako
[8:22] Surfwidow Beaumont: i based it on the original tako script
[8:22] BeeJee Boucher: can i jump in the futere πŸ˜‰
[8:23] Surfwidow Beaumont: and then rewrote some parts
[8:23] Liv Leigh: jump int he future..? you need a timechanine
[8:23] Liv Leigh: machine
[8:23] Surfwidow Beaumont: that needed changing to make sense
[8:23] Orca Flotta: it’s a racing board, not a wave board Beej
[8:23] Kees Carthage: lol
[8:23] BennyThe Boozehound: or a delorean
[8:23] Kittlyn Cuttita: Can you gybe the land sim?

A certain look

A certain look

Sometimes in SL an avatar will strike a pose or give you a look that will make you smile πŸ™‚ . I had such a moment earlier today while chatting with Diana Allandale in her shop in Sailors Cove:

Diana the precious

Sigh, so precious :).

Paisley the booze hound

Paisley the booze hound


So I log in today and materialize in my radio studios in Sailors Cove. Chairs rez, walls, pictures, mic, consoles…. wait… what’s this???


OMG! A big mess! A barrel of whiskey, beer mugs, beer cans.Who did this? A closer look reveals some clues:


Aussie beer, who do I know that drinks that? I edit the cans. AHA! Paisley Beebe!!!! That lush! She has a kegger in my studio and I’m not invited. I’ll make her come back and clean this mess up! In the mean time…hmmm, this can isn’t empty…


Good thing I found this before GoSpeed did. She just can’t hold her booze very well. Belccchhh!!!

This is why you are safer at a Sailors Cove concert than elsewhere

Sailing in the waters of Sailors Cove

I completed another video today. This one features GoSpeed sailing a Flying Fizz in the waters of Sailors Cove. I had enough video to fit the background music perfectly. NFL Films has some great tracks that are very adaptable to various film genre.

I’d like to invite everyone to submit to us your videos of Sailors Cove. Sailing, Dancing, partying, whatever the event in Sailors Cove. Send us your links to Youtube or other videoΒ  hosting sites. These are preferred since our blog/website is limited on the amount of media it can hold.

Here’s a video of GoSpeed sailing the Flying Fizz in the Sugar Reef sim.

Also here is a video of the dance from the clubhouse on Fishers Island Sunday night.
