Hotlapper of The Week - Liz (LizbethSmith)

I had the chance to get an interview with Liz. Let see what makes her like sailing and Hotlaps :)

We love it that you are hotlapping with us!

Ginger Henderson: How did your interest with sailing in Second Life begin?
LizbethSmith: A friend took me on a fun boat ride. It looked easy so I tried a Nemo the next time and went on from there.

Ginger: We  have seen you sail in many Hotlaps. What do you like about them?
Liz: Sailing the Hotlaps helps me sail better because I learn how the boats sail and how the wind affects them. I also like meeting the other sailors and seeing the sights.

Ginger: Anything different you would like to see with Hotlaps?
Liz: Sometimes I start a lap but soon see that it is not worth going farther. Maybe there is too much lag or a sim is closed. Is there some way to show the lag on the course close to the start line?

Ginger: What part of the Real Life world are you from?
Liz: I am on sl time.

Ginger: Do you sail also in your Real Life as well?
Liz: I sail in rl some but mostly just enjoy the ride. Now that I understand sailing and the wind better I would like to try the tiller more.

Ginger: What are your top 3 favourite sailboats in Second Life?
Liz: My first Hotlaps were with the Shields. More recently I am sailing the Ushuaia, because all it did for me in the beginning was the wrong thing. I just got a Nacra and love how fast it goes.

Ginger: We've seen you sailing mostly the Shields, have you been sailing this boat for long?
Liz: A friend told me to get a Shields, so I got a Shields for free that I love to sail. It is easy and relaxing and you cannot tip it over.

Ginger: Besides Hotlaps, do you practice with sailing often?
Liz: I like sailing my Ushuaia in the topless cruises :)

Ginger: When sailing, do you use any tools or settings to help you that you may want to share with others?
Liz: I try sailing the course in different ways to learn which is quickest, when I have the time. Also, if I see somebody sailing quickly then I see which way they are going.

Ginger: What question would you like to ask other sailors out there?
Liz: Sometimes it is so addicting I cannot stop. Is there a Hotlaps Anonymous out there?

Ginger: Is there anything else you would like to share with others?
Liz: Thanks for making it so friendly and fun. :)

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