We asked Willets Meyer's J/44 Beagle crew to describe their team and we look forward to seeing them bringing the fun to the starting line this June:⠀
"Beagle's eclectic and mostly veteran crew will include members of the whimsical Imperial Poona Yacht Club, founded in the UK in 1936 and known for imperial thinking, pith helmets, backward racing and excessive involvement in tomfoolery and shenanigans.⠀
