    Yesterday, the Governor of Bermuda 🇧🇲, Rena Lalgie walked the docks of @royalbermudayc chatting with the sailors, particularly the youth sailors of the @ratzracing about their initiatives.

    John Browning is the current living record holder for the most Bermuda Races with 27. Second to Jim Mertz with 30 but he has “sailed his last Bermuda Race” as they say. He has never sailed it on his own boat and the boat he crewed in this year, JCurve, almost never made it to the starting line.

    Listen to this great interview over some @goslingsrum for some great stories. Link in bio to our YouTube page.
