I'm posting this here in the hope that someone more knowledgeable than I can explain just what has gone wrong with Sailing in SL. Tonight my partner and I rezzed our not too old Bandit 60 at Nantucket Sailing Club and headed out into Blake. We had only crossed 3 regions when two things became apparent: 1) the yacht was slow to react to commands 2) region crossings were initially much better than they were. Then just after our third region crossing the boat simply stopped and became unresponsive. After 30 seconds it jerked into life and resumed its course, but we realised it was not responding to commands either in chat or via a touch menu. At the next crossing I was unsat from my cockpit position and my avatar now was sat on (perhaps) the craft's root prim somewhere in the belly of it. My partner, who was "driving" deliberately unsat, but the boat continued and eventually I unsat and TP'd home. I must assume the boat continued until SL killed it at the next region border. The map was utterly useless since land on neighbouring regions either never appeared or did so intermittently. So, I ask in all innocence and ignorance; what on Earth is happening? I also noticed that the Nantucket Yacht Club region traffic was a fraction of its normal value, so perhaps I should have realised that there was a problem, compounded by the fact that I could see very few other avatars on the water. All the regions we entered appeared to be running 555570.
