"Bacardi Gras" Rounds Up Bermuda Race Week: Summer. Is. Here.

by SARAH MANDATO · April 27, 2009

Friday concluded 2009's Bermuda International Invitation Race Week, adding to the general excitement surrounding all things summer. A long list of elite global competitors gathered at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club for five days of some serious on-water competition and then unwind with a Bacardi Rum sponsored "Bacardi Gras" celebration. Above is one of my favorite snapshots from the Laser class, showing a pretty intense contender (LOVE the Mount Gay hat) getting his butt kicked by a cute little lady sailor.
