Come sail with us! – a sailing promotion video

Surfwidow Beaumont is wellknown for her series of video’s in the Second Life sailing community. I remember her goodbye video for the Hukilau sims, once a home of Tradewinds Yacht Club, very well. Her great video about the 32nd America’s Cup in SL of 2007 is a landmark, having brought many people into Second Life Sailing.

A few weeks ago she has released a new video, especially for promotion purposes. I have not linked it yet to my site, but naturally, if I intend to take myself serious as a sailing blogger, I will just have to do this.

So, here it is:

The video is intended especially to promote sailing in the virtual world of Second Life and features a large number of different sailboats and sailors. Insiders will recognize some of the footage from events like the 2009 Fizz Cup and other landmark sailing events in SL.

Let’s hope the video will help us achieve one of our common goals: grow the sailing community inside Second Life and have fun with even more virtual sailors and sailing events.
