    That is a very tricky area if you are not familiar with it. Had my turn at dragging one off the rocks there one night.

  4. Commodore JB of BBIRYC says:

    As the Commodore of BBIRYC, all the invited members of BBIRYC must have passed their pilots licenses. I therfore suggest, in the interest of safety for myself and responsible yachtsmen of BBIRYC, that all other mariners should require a license as well. We do not like our safety compromised by amateurs like this.

      Must be nice to be perfect and never have an accident. Karma sux pal.

      • Commodore JB of BBIRYC says:

        I am more Bermudian than you. My family dates back from the Sea Venture. I learned from their mistakes so that I never wreck.

    • Sure is says:

      Ur a stuck up idiot. What about all the big fishing boats that cross the ocean and berth at ya perfect club and still run aground?

      • You do realise that the BBIRYC is a spoof, and “Commodore” JB is attempting to have a little fun?

        • Commodore JB of BBIRYC says:

          Firstly, BBIRYC is not a spoof. It is a very elite yacht club that is invitation only. Secondly, not just any joe blow can cross the ocean and berth at my yacht club. Invited members are very high networth persons and it is a very discreet club.

          • Sure is says:

            Bunch of people like yourself. High net worth and think your better than everyone else.

      • Vice Commodore Double Seven Single Niner says:

        Commodore JB I could not agree with your comment more, having kayaked through some of the most dangerous waters in the world, and narrowly escaping from a shark attack, I feel there is no better person than me to teach water safety as well as survival/prepping classes at my estate. I shall get the details worked out and sent for approval from BBIRYC shortly .
