From Rick Lenard: "This is Wilson, a 4 year old Black and Tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel working hard on the docks! He comes to work with me everyday (I'm a yacht broker with RCR Yachts Buffalo). His job is to keep the Canada Geese away from the docks and lawn. Nothing worse than goose poop when you're trying to fold sails!"

Chicago Yacht Club may soon be seeing the famous Volvo Ocean 70 PUMA Ocean Racing boat il Mostro in their neighborhood. The boat, last used in the 2008-9 Volvo Ocean Race, was recently purchased by Chicago Yacht Club member Peter Thornton with the specific goal of garnering line honors in the Chicago-Mackinac Race this summer.

Scuttlebutt assocate Michelle Slade is in the Caribbean this week to report on the BVI Sailing Festival and Spring Regatta. While at the Bitter End Yacht Club, Michelle enjoyed an unexpected meet with Ernesto Bertarelli & his wife Kirsty, and snapped this photo of Kirsty's rather lovely yacht at anchor.

Now... we have seen everything. Photo by Guy Nowell.
