The conditions for the Backwater Bay Yacht Club Open Regatta were anything but pleasant. The Second Life™ platform was going through emergency maintenance to its login servers which in effect either crashed most who were logged in at the time, or prevented others from logging in. Yet, we still had several show up to race and even watch. Red was able to bring out her Bandit IF, Donkey, along with Nihiwatu, who had her own Bandit IF. The big boat portion of the regatta was abandoned as it was evident that the ongoing maintenance was preventing anyone from attending due to restricted login access, see Login Maintenance and Host Upgrade from the Second Life Status page.

The big boat portion of the regatta was abandoned due to ongoing technical difficulties to the Second Life™ platform from emergency maintenance by Linden Lab.
