Hotlapper of The Week - Nala Kristina

Nala is a fellow blogger and a determined Hotlapper so needed to get an interview with her. :)

We love you are hotlapping with us!

Ginger Henderson: Your interest with sailing in Second Life, how did it begin?
Nala Kristina: I was about 1 week old in sl, when I met someone who took me sailing in her Bandit 60. I’m still not completely sure where we were on the grid, but I was sold and have not really looked back since. I feel lucky that I was introduced to sailing that early in my SL-

Ginger: We seen you sail in some Hotlaps. What do you enjoy about them?
Nala: I like that I can go race whenever I have 30 mins of spare time. At the same time I like to compete against the clock and myself, see if I can improve my time or find new ways to handle the boat I’m sailing.

Ginger: Any changes you would like to see with Hotlaps?
Nala: After we had the “Hud timer” I really can’t think of anything.

Ginger: What part of the Real Life world are you from?
Nala: I’m from Denmark so CET

Ginger: Do you sail also in your Real Life as well?
Nala: I sailed when I was younger. My parents owned a BB10 ( Keelboat ) and I was always sailing when I was growing up. Optimist, Laser, Tornado, but after moving away from home it’s not that often.

Ginger: What are your top 3 favourite sailboats in Second Life?
Nala: Nacra 17, OD65 and Flyin shadow are the ones I sail the most, but love cruising in any boat I can get my hands on.

Ginger: We've seen you sailing mostly the Nacra 17, have you been sailing this boat for long?
Nala: The Nacra was the one of the first boats I bought, it’s fairly easy to sail even as a noob, and yet even after hours and hours of sailing it I keep finding ways to improve speed. With a little help form the other hotlappers

Ginger: Besides Hotlaps, do you practice with sailing often?
Nala: I seem to spend most of my time on the water somehow, I like sailing so yes I do it a lot. I should start racing , and hope that I’ll get the nerve soon

Ginger: When sailing, do you use any tools or settings to help you you may want to share with others?
Nala: I use the USB, Burt’s Compass and my mini map a lot, the new timer is great too-

Ginger: What question would you like to ask other sailors out there?
Nala: Are we going to have that hotlapper party ?

Ginger: Is there anything else you would like to share with others?
Nala: I want to thank the other hotlappers for being who they are. When I showed up for my first lap ever, the first two people I ran into was Ginger and Burt and I felt welcome. The same goes for my fellow hotlappers, always ready to share tips and tricks.. More people like you in the world please.

Ginger: Thank you very much for your time for this interview and looking forward to seeing you on the Second Life waters soon.  :)
