2016 PEOPLE: HOBBIES: Boating and sailing communities developing on the hypergrid

Boating and sailing communities 
developing on the hypergrid
Boating, sailing, and boat races are a growing interest on several grids connected to the hypergrid.  OpenSimulator is especially well suited for water activities because of the availability of varregions, which can allow areas as large as 100 old-style sims with no sim-border crossings.
