  1. Commodore JB of BBIRYC says:

    In my opinion, fitted dinghy racing is far more exciting than the America’s Cup. Although the America’s Cup is about innovation and transforming the sport and art of yachtin, I am a stickler for tradition. As Commodore of BBIRYC, I think I will commission somebody to build me a fleet of fitted dinghies, hire the best crews and win all of these races. At BBIRYC we already have the best bailer, that being Vice Commodore Double Seven Single Niner.

    • Person who knows a little says:

      Good luck with that. Would be interesting racing against more than 3 other boats.

    Ahoy to my fellow mariners from Las Vegas. For once I must disagree with The Commodore as I clearly am the chief bailer of the club nowadays. Apart from a rare appearance at non mariners I have been absent from events, meeting and other social functions. Unfortunately this is unlikely to change for about ten years but I will always cherish the special moments I enjoyed as a member of the still exclusive BBIRYC.
