2024 Update

My first event of the year was the Bucket Regatta in St. Barths in March. I sailed on the Frers 150 HYPERION with a great team of industry professionals, pro crew, friends, and the permanent crew. This is one of my favorite Superyachts to race on as it behaves much like a smaller boat with nice performance and responsiveness, and it’s a great team of people. We sailed a good regatta, made hardly a mistake, and finished a solid 2nd for the event. And on top of this, we had a great time, so a huge success!

My next event was the BVI Spring Regatta in early April in the British Virgin Islands. This was a “fun” event for me, opting to sail on a friends 45footer PAROMA and help/coach his team around the track. My secondary goal was to visit friends and support this great event which I had not been to in many years, thanks to hurricanes, Covid, other racing, etc. We finished another close 2nd (they do call me Mr. Silver around here for a reason!!), and most importantly, we had a great time racing and enjoying the whole regatta experience.

The big J Class TOPAZ that I’ve managed and raced for the past 5 years has recently decided to pause their racing, so my schedule going forward is now wide open. Change is good, so I’ll enjoy this period and see what life presents, and where my desire leads me. These are interesting and changing times, and it’s important to sort your priorities and live your life to the fullest.
