Racing at Bitter End: It ain't over 'til the cooler's empty!

PMY's annual sales and edit meeting was held last week at the Bitter End Yacht Club (BEYC) on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. This is the second year in a row that we have been welcomed with open arms at the renowned sailing destination, regardless of our penchant for diesel. Who says blow boaters and stink potters can't get along?

BEYC sailing instructors even tried to convert us with a five-minute crash course in sailing followed by a regatta onboard the resort's fleet. Chaos ensued of course, but considering there were no collisions or MOBs, it was deemed a success.

The winning team included (from left to right) ad sales rep David Parkinson, senior editor Ken Kreisler, ad sales rep Joe Illes, and video & creative manager John Turner. They may have won the regatta, but they never do seem to let that cooler run empty at the BEYC—so I guess the race is still on!
