    So excited! Time to shine Bermuda

    • Onion Juice says:

      Tried to get excited, but not into sailing like that, havnt had a raise in 5 years, our schools are in shambles, seniors are being neglected, jobs are limited, but we gave $100 Million to hold a sailboat ra e for Billionaires.

      • hmmm says:

        PLP did such a **** job, I agree.

        Nobody gave $100, you are living in ignorant ville.

      • the real Terry says:

        Give us a break O J Early this week it was 77M now its 100M To be a good liar you have to have a better memory than you have. As a matter of fact there are hundreds if not thousands of people that look like you who have taken the opportunity to participate in the AC and have done very well thank you very much. You use to be amusing in your bigotry now its wearing a little thin as your lies get a little more outlandish every day. If you want to offend someone from the OBA tell them a lie, if you want to offend someone from the PLP tell them the truth. Enjoy your misery you have worked hard for it.

        • Onion Juice says:

          Ahh, do you know what I look like, and what does looking like someone have to do with common interest, if thats de case O.B.A. should be grass roots orientated, oh wait they are Surrogates as stated in de secret manifesto.

          • FUI says:

            your a f****** idiot OJ

          • the real Terry says:

            Because Onion Juice you keep telling us that people that look like you are not benefitting from the AC and I’m telling you that is another of your lies but then again they took the initiative something foreign to you it appears.

            • Just the facts says:

              And then your constant use of “de” instead of “the.” Actually, that doesn’t tell us what you look like, it tells us how uneducated you are.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          He also threw in 80 mill a few days ago .
          I’m just waiting for him to manipulate it up to 200 mil .
          Any takers ?

        • Wise Guy says:

          They actually pledged $250M in Parliamentto spend on AC. Go check the Hanzard wise guy. So OJ gave an underestimate..

          • Onion Juice says:

            My bad.

            • aceboy says:

              The ACTUALS came out less. About the same amount as was spent on Grand Atlantic.

              There is a bit of reality for you OJ.

              Do we want more of the AC or more empty housing units perched on a crumbling cliff?

    • Wow says:

      The 2 Bermudas is correct 1 side is shining with smiles while the other side… Why are my people not attending :( sad. The OBA should have never made this political.

      • Onion Juice says:

        Friends and family economic grab.

        • aceboy says:

          I sat and listened to a PLP supporter, who was watching the AC and saying how wonderful it was, claim that if Bermuda hosts the event a second time it will be better and more Bermudians will benefit. He was basically assuming that the PLP will win the election and go right ahead and start negotiating with the AC people as soon as that happens.

          This was a highly educated person.

          He didn’t stop and think that the AC won’t want to negotiate with the PLP who are trying to disrupt the event even after assurances given after the Chris Furbert threat.

          The AC guys don’t have the convenient memory of the PLP, they base decisions on facts and action.

          Many PLP supporters seem extremely confused at the moment.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        The OBA made this political ? ? Ha ha , more alternative facts .
        No-one but the PLP and their bitter supporters made this political .
        I just hope that all the participating teams and their members/supporters don’t have access to any of these comment boards because it would be awfully nice to have them back again.

      • wahoo says:

        If any Bermudian is not there it is purely a matter of choice all are welcome!

  2. Real Onion says:

    Yawns,think I’ll go back to bed.

    • rumsoak says:

      You just stay there .

    • Hmmm says:

      Sounds like sour onion!

      • No!! No sour onion here. It is the truth. Too much deception about Bermudians not having jobs.
        Put Bermudians back to work BEFORE ac ends.
        Watch dunk and his group. They will not budge.
        No democracy evident for 5 years.

    • Me too. This is a big show about nothing.
      I am going back to bed too.
      What happens after this is over?
      I know:
      The vote of NO CONFIDENCE will be tabled.
      The best to David Burt.

      • Mike Hind says:

        I’d like to go to bed, but I’m too busy working.
        The upturn in tourism has done wonders for my business.

        Maybe the problem is that you’re going back to bed instead of waking up, Betty.

        • Onion Juice says:

          Well friends and family are benefitting.

          • Mike Hind says:

            I’m not friends and family.

            Oh, wait. I’m white, so it must be nepotism that made me a success, right?

            You are everything that is wrong with Bermuda, you hateful, ignorant bigot. Please stop. We deserve better than this.

            • Onion Juice says:

              Undeserved privileged citizens.

              • Mike Hind says:

                You have no idea what you are talking about. You are just lashing out like a child because your political party isn’t in power. Grow up and start working for what is best for Bermuda. Please.

              • Make PLP great again! says:

                No-one deserves privilege. Mike has built up his business tooth and nail himself so stop being a bully.

        • Herbert Smoker says:

          the last hurrah. let’s enjoy while we can.

          • Mike Hind says:

            Not at all. I’m booked up all summer and it’s looking like next summer will be great, too.

            But you keep hoping for Bermuda to fail so you can get your political part back in. See how well that goes for you.

            • Wow says:

              Thank the heavens that the OBA didn’t support you’re type! SSM

  3. Community First says:

    Very exciting to see the progress and the day is finally here – congratulations to all involved in hosting this event and what an opportunity to invite the world to our shores.

    May the winds be favorable and everyone experience the kindness and generosity of our collective Bermudian spirit.

    • collective Bermudian spirit????
      Bermudians are in need of jobs. Can you understand English??
      Focus on employing BERMUDIANS and not ac.

      • Cow polly says:

        Open your bigoted eyes, Bermudians of all shapes, sizes and colors are attending. This was never about politics it was about what we do best, hospitality

      • Gaffer says:

        There are still job openings for the airport build. Asking bermudians to go apply but to everyone’s surprise they don’t want a job. Enough complaining about bermudians needing jobs.

        • Gaffer says:

          There are jobs everywhere. Bermudians just want to complain.

      • Zevon says:

        Ten thousand people there. All people. Having a good, along with a lot of visitors.
        You hate to see Bermudian success, we all know that.

      • the real Terry says:

        Have Some Backbone, if you have one iota of one answer these 2 simple questions. 1: How did the PLP pay for the civil service wages in Jan. of 1999 and 2: How did the OBA pay the same wage bill in Jan. of 2013. Surely the answer to these simple questions would preclude anyone ever voting for the PLP. It would be interesting to see how you spin your answer if at all. Enjoy the AC there are some really nice people attending, do you good to widen your circle of friends. LOL

  4. Ms. G says:

    Congratulations Bermuda!!!❤

  5. Wow says:

    My little home on the world stage. My smile can’t get any bigger. Bless Bermuda!

    • Onion Juice says:

      While those of us who are not in de elite circle of undeserved privilege are not smiling becsuse of social neglect and slashed public funding.
      But there is money to host an event for Billionaires.

      • Dunkley is the main dude here. Also G Gibbons.
        They deserve to be kicked out of office. All of them.

        • wahoo says:

          Why? For creating an economic boom? This is what good thinking and hard work will do for us.

        • the real Terry says:

          Don’t look now have some backbone, but between Dunkley and Gibbons there is more brains than the entire PLP MP’s put together. No wonder you are so jealous of them and keep bringing up their names. LOL Enjoy the AC it is the greatest event ever to be staged in Bda. and if you guys get in again it will be the last.

          • Ringmaster says:

            Michael Dunkley and The Gibbons Family together probably employ more Bermudians than all the PLP MPs.

            If have some backbone would take off their down trodden and persecuted blinkers they would see the benefits of AC like the Endeavour Program – a classroom using the sea and giving untold opportunities to the less privileged the grounding in STEAM.

            Maybe you are the person I saw several years ago at the tennis stadium. A very young girl, maybe 8, picked a racket and wanted to ht some balls. Suddenly a male, I’ll take it her father, shouted at her to put it down. She was so upset. Very sad.

        • Point boy says:

          How do you come to such conclusions? The OBA are successfully bringing Bermuda out of debt.

          You talk about money spent on the AC but mention nothing of returns!

          This is going to be the biggest year for (all Bermuda) if you get up.

    • the real Terry says:

      Wow you are so spot on, it is hard to imagine this tiny island of ours, and it is very tiny, hosting probably the 3rd largest sporting event in the world. The organizers deserve a lot of credit for I. getting it in the first place and 2. for having the venue ready on time. Awesome accomplishment OBA.

      • Gaffer says:

        Here, here. I lie it. Let’s enjoy this time.

      • Bob Walnut says:

        I’ve heard this said a lot, this idea that it’s the “3rd largest sporting event in the world”. This is utter nonsense. Now, I’m a supporter of the AC, think it’s the best thing to happen to our island in a long, long time, but we can’t start lying about it’s global influence. There’s at least 25 sporting events which dwarf the AC in scale, including all 4 Golf majors, all 4 Tennis majors, Ryder Cup, Cricket World Cup, Indian Premier League Cricket, Rugby World Cup, Superbowl, F1 Grand Prix, Grand National, Kentucky Derby, Commonwealth Games, European Athletics Championships, Olympics. Notice I haven’t started in on Football, which would add another 7-8 competitions to this list. The Guardian newspaper published a supplement in, I think it was 2006 before that World Cup, of the biggest sporting events in the world. AC was not mentioned once.

        • the real Terry says:

          Bob Walnut My bad sorry I stand corrected. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Give Bermudians the jobs they rightfully deserve FIRST!!!

      • Ringmaster says:

        Rightfully deserve? Entitlement to the front. Many hundreds of jobs have been created for Bermudians who wanted to work. Construction has boomed as a result of the influx of people related to AC. If you think the PLP will wave a magic wand and give you a job, enjoy the dream.

      • Gaffer says:

        The bermudians that REALLY want to work all have jobs. They are not complaining. Cheers to the HARD working bermudians.

  6. Congratulation Bermuda says:

    Congratulations Bermuda! I believe you outdid San Francisco! Thanks for welcoming us in your country! Nice to see the heartwarming Bermudian people all smiling and being so accepting! Nothing but great memories.

    • frank says:

      ask SanFrancisco is they want to host it again

  7. hhmmm…
    In these pictures, One can spot about 4 people of colour
    We want jobs.
    Not this gibberish!!

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Have you seen the pictures of ‘all’ the volunteers ?
      Have you seen the coverage of all the children benefiting from all of the associated sailing programmes ?
      Have you seen the pictures of the people directly benefiting from all of the charitable donations made from the sailing teams ?
      Maybe there should be some close up shots of those ‘privileged people’ in their boats as well . You would be surprised , I’m sure .
      Go away Betty .

      • Onion Juice says:

        Volunteer, unemployment on de rise, we gave $100 Million and now you want me to volunteer.

        • OBA one term says:

          LMAO that’s funny. Leave the OBA alone please. We will vote Dunkely out soon.

          He is the leader that failed his party and the People.

          • Wahoo says:

            Can you tell us how he failed? Likely not. You want to get my vote with sound bites and I am insulted.

    • Zevon says:

      There were thousands of people of colour there. Sorry to disappoint you.

  8. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Backbone and Onion…gimme gimme gimme never get!! Get a life!!!

  9. Janice says:

    No government can fix stupid

  10. sage says:

    On another note, are the girls wearing pasties (I think), panties and paint part of the kids zone and will they be at tomorrows’ “kids day” I think my kids would love painting cartoons on them, must feel weird walking around like that. Anyway you can rest assured the bars will be in full swing for family day, I saw kids belly up to the “Boner Bar” (WTF?) a shack set up nearer the road at Bonefish in Dockyard at 2pm today, but hey why be a party pooper and spoil the fun?

  11. ImJustSayin says:

    Just look at who is in the crowd up there. Not your average hard working Bermudian that’s for sure. Just a glorified boat race.

    • Lois Frederick says:

      $10 general admission is pretty affordable for anyone interested. That is what I am doing with my family.

      • Ringmaster says:

        A lot cheaper than the Banquets put on by the likes of the BIU; PLP and BPSU. At $100 a head no one complains, yet in the pictures there are very few average working Bermudians. Just the usual privileged elite.

  12. ImJustSayin says:

    I wonder if those same people would come out and support Bermuda in an international football game.I don’t think so.. Because they live in there own little world here.

    • Clint Eastwood says:

      America’s Cup teams donating money to local Bermudian charities…thoughts?
      Didn’t think so..

    • Zevon says:

      America’s Cup team giving boats to local schoolkids. Thoughts? Nope?

    • Point boy says:

      How do you come to such conclusions? The OBA are successfully bringing Bermuda out of debt.

      You talk about money spent on the AC but mention nothing of returns!

      This is going to be the biggest year for (all Bermuda) if you get up.

  13. Truth says:

    PLP miserable bunch of 8a5t39d5. From a bermudian!

  14. Natural says:

    Money would have been better spent on seniors and schools.smh. Glorified party for the other Bermuda.

    • Mike Hind says:

      There WAS no money. This was an INVESTMENT.
      Please read up on things before you spew nonsense.

    • Zevon says:

      If you invest money and grow the economy there is more money to spend on schools.

  15. Common Sense says:

    As an investment the AC is far better than the mistakes of Global Hue, Faith Based Tourism and of course Grand Atlantic. When there is more money coming into Bermuda, there will be more money for education/seniors etc. One has to spend money to make money. The exposure is priceless

  16. Zevon says:

    There’s some really nice pictures there Bernews.

  17. Paul says:

    Great job Bermuda, makes you proud to be a Bermudian .

  18. Billy Bye' says:

    The event looks great’ a lot of sacrifice and social programs cut in order to host this event and making it work – I pray we get the 350 million dollars yield that It was projected to make – for the sake of Bermuda I hope it’s successful Financially.
    …..and if it not then the OBA will get the boot.

    • Wow says:

      They already got the BOOT. Why you think the dunk waiting to Christmas to call the election! Someone needs to tell him the longer he waits the less votes he will get from the other half of Bermuda.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      * for the sake of Bermuda I hope it’s successful Financially.
      …..and if it not then the OBA will get the boot.*

      Yeah , and then we can go back to what ruined us in the first place.
