“Highlights of the evening centred on season winners Maxwell Curtis and Stephan Furbert, who walked away with a resounding victory and many trophies as fleet champions. Also spotlighted were the sailing duo of Dale Brangman and 12-year-old crew member Whitney Institute student Tarjari Rogers.

“Together this team of experience and youth defeated 20 other entries to capture the win in the prestigious 75th annual Edward Cross Long Distance Comet Race. This crew also picked up several wins in the seasonal regattas.

“Tarjari, who has been sailing since the age of eight, was then inducted into the world of international sailing when he once again was called upon to crew for Dale at the 2019 Comet Class Yacht Racing Association International Regatta in Oxford, Maryland in August 2019.

“Skill, diligence and collaboration led this team to an eighth place finish. Fellow Bermudians Rudy Bailey and Corey Bean won the international championship, with Maxwell Curtis and Stephan Furbert finishing in fourth place.”
