Gallery: Fastnet Rock in Blake Sea Crow’s Nest

“A monument to Sailors in Second Life and real world sailors alike,” was the mission for which this build was chosen.  From its first days marking the Blake Sea rocks in the Crow’s Nest sim, the virtual Fastnet Rock Light continues to stand watch. An immense effort and collaboration from all parts of the metaverse allowed this rather windy and wreck-prone spot a place for visitors to enjoy the waters of Blake Sea and find their way safely to their destination.  I recently was shown a blog entry about Fastnet from Inara Pey which highlights the lighthouse.  She also mentions the Fastnet Memorial, which is a real stone, kept within sight of the lighthouse (on a rare clear day) on the coast of Ireland.  On it are the names of sailors who have in their passing had great effect upon our modern day sport.  In the virtual version, the same is true, for each name on this new face carries with it important messages for all of us we can never forget.  Thank you Inara!cn-3_001 cn-2_001 sparr-5_001 sail-4_001
