Don’t miss the Third Annual Fleet Week in the Steamlands!

The THIRD ANNUAL gathering of
Second Life’s Steamland Navies

Shipbuilders Exhibit * Submarine Race * Windjammers Race
Epic Ironclad Battles * Tall Ship Battles *
Naval Review * Uniform Ball
Winterfell * November 13-19

If you have ever wanted to see the Steamlands in all their glory, and find out about this recreation of Victorian lifestyles (with a heavy injection of steampunk, in many cases) is all about, the Fleet Week is an excellent place to start.  There are social events and competitions – there are races – there are displays of creativity – there are even friendly battles.  It’s an opportunity to see some of Second Life’s most skilled creators at the very top of their game … and then you can socialise and learn more about this very friendly and very diverse set of communities that make up the Steamlands.

If you have a slot in your diaries this week, do try to take in one of the Fleet Week events!
