EAM TRIALS CONTINUE!
Just two weeks remain to join a team sailing for the SLSF Cup! Major venues are hosting a series of regattas to determine their club champions, but many smaller clubs are also actively recruiting crew throughout the various sailing fleets. The best way to secure a position on a sponsored team is to get out on the water and sail - talk to people at the major club regattas, keep an eye on the Second Life Sailing Federation group forum's Upcoming Events.

THE SUMMER 2006 SLSF CUP SERIES...
The Second Life Sailing Federation Cup is a perpetual challenge trophy for friendly competition between sailing clubs. Modeled after the real-life America's Cup, the SLSF Cup regatta series encourages the proliferation of sailing enthusiasm across Second Life through a season of realistic fleet and match racing between club-sponsored teams of Second Life's top sailors.
The Summer 2006 SLSF Cup season lasts twelve weeks:
10 June - 10 July - Team Trials
15 July - Challenger Act 1
22 July - Challenger Act 2
29 July - Challenger Act 3
05 Aug - Challenger Act 4
12 Aug - Challenger Act 5
19 Aug - Challenger Act 6
26-27 Aug - Challenger Cup
02-03 Sep - SLSF Cup
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Anyone! Challenger teams consist of up to four crew, with one skipper and one tactician required to sail in any particular race. The only requirement is that teams be sponsored by an active sailing club. Team trials last four weeks, and are at each sponsor club's discretion.
Can't find a sponsor club to suit your needs? Start your own! It's very easy to qualify as an active sailing club: simply agree to host six public regattas over the next six months. The SLSF is full of resourceful people eager to help new clubs get off the ground, so don't hesitate to ask.
New to sailing, but still interested in participating? Teams need crew! Inquire with the SLSF or any participating yacht club for a bounty of experienced real-life and second-life sailors raring to take new people under their wing.
