Blake's Sea

Last night, Mr. Hotspur O'Toole was kind enough to announce to Caledon that Blake's Sea would soon come into existence. Blake's Sea, if I recall correctly, was what was once the United Sailing Sims. The Openspace debacle made these sims financially non-viable, but the USS group made arrangements with Linden Lab to have the space (or some fraction thereof) relocated to the east of Nautilus. Blake's Sea provides a substantial buffer between the Mainland (including Nautilus) and the USS sims.

Kathy was flying aimlessly when she received word of the sea's impending arrival, so she flew to Lost Isle to wait. When she arrived, a small flotilla was already in place:

Naturally, when the time came, the event was fairly anti-climactic. Kathy set out into the new waters, only to be greeted with a message "You do not have permission to enter this region," followed by movement into the region, at which point she was completely stuck. Ah well.
I could not help but notice that the region immediately west of Lost Isle was named "Blake Sea - Kendra." Methinks Mr. O'Toole had something to do with that. Speaking of whom, the Fleet Captain has a brief film of the event here.
