    Dennis Conner, sailing 'Maybe VII', won the 2017 6mR class Lipton Cup this weekend in a mixed fleet of moderns and classics, and including the reigning World and European classics champions.

    In a chartered boat. Against people who live this stuff. Needless to say, I am impressed (yeah, I know he could care less if I am impressed, but it is still pretty cool).
