Freedoms in Second Life® allows residents to create any kind of world they desire. Many reproduce reality—places they love or places they wish to live. Others create fantasies—environments impossible in real life. For any community to build and last, no matter what kind, there needs to be an identity, which means rules.

The communities surrounding the Blake Sea exemplify some of what residents most love in the real world. Its sandy shores boast quaint towns of various themes, mansions house boat lovers, and residents share the best in SL from clubs to shopping to open seas for sailing.

The United Sailing Sims is comprised of the major owners, each with a unique cluster of properties, but all with common goals. Their impressive longevity means that they know how to navigate in more ways than just on pixellated water!

The entrepreneurial spirit is deeply engaged here—plus a harmony of vision and approach. The sims all boast character because their leaders do not shy away from defining their kingdoms. They display a combination of sensitivity and toughness needed to succeed in any world.

All are long veterans of SL. To examine how they balance creativity, individuality, collaboration, and community reveals great advice for those newer. Discussing past, present, and future with two members, Sudane Erato and Ty Lomes of New England and Snug Harbor, respectively, demonstrate that the USS has a solid direction and unity. Even through many challenges of evolution, the shared vision and quality of life remain both constant and protected.
