Of all the things one can do naked in Second Life, of course…sailing is one of them! Now, I have never felt the need to sail naked in Real Life, and to be honest…not even in Second Life, because..well, why? And also, The Blake Seas where I usually sail do not allow it.
Two friends of me, Beth and her partner Hugh, are a tad more into nudity/naturism, and sailing-enthusiasts, and they told me about the Naked Sailing Club in Second Life, where one can sail over 9 sims, in ..ahem…birthday-suit (mandatory by the way, clothes are frowned upon).
With all the new mesh bodies these days, I have one too, I must say….Second Life’s Nudity is good looking and so, oh well…why not….I decided to go see and try.
Needless to say, The Naked Sailing Club is Adult-rated, and to be able to moor your boat you need to be a member, which costs 150 LS. I paid and moored the Dutchess (first IN the clubhouse, then on another boat and finally in the water…sigh) and dressed in my new mesh body..I sailed away!
Strong winds, I think I have never sailed so fast, at some point going over 7 knots! Wooohoo!
After an hour of sailing, returned to the Clubhouse and looked around a bit. It is not like sailing the huge Blake Sea, this club is also for socializing and meeting people, hence the clubhouse. One can also rent a spot to keep the boat moored, so you do not have to pick it up every time after sailing.
(All information on prices and rules are available in the clubhouse, at the north-side of the building).
I sat on the deck, with a magazine, looking at the sunset and I think I will come here more often for a short trip with the Dutchess :)
The NSC has a Flickr Group with more images from members (nudity may appear).
