Just as James gets back from the Thistle Midwinters (a report from him coming up later), Ian headed south with skipper Ben Fransen for the Bacardi Cup.
This 82nd edition of the Bacardi Cup has brought 62 Star’s down to sunny Miami. Incidentally, I discovered that the easiest job in the United States right now must be “Weatherman in Miami”, given the forecast this week.
Anyway, known far and wide for his unique literary style, Ian checked in last night after the first race. If any major newspapers out there would like to pick this up for printing, just let us know and we’ll be happy to put you in touch with the wordsmith himself.
“Good start at the boat.
Sailed well first beat.
Rounded top 15.
