    Awesome job everyone! It’s fantastic to see this part of the island’s rich heritage out on the water. These boats are not easy to sail and it was wonderful to see so many spectators down in St. Georges to support all the crews! Here’s to a great Fitted Dinghy season! Thanks Bernews for sharing.
