Niagara Gazette — Other than Burns' presence, the one other thing the two crews have in common is their love for sailing, Burns said. After defeating a majority of teams which feature professional sailors, each member, whose ages range from late-20s to mid-50s, returned home to their day jobs. In the end, it's just a group of sailors out on the water having a good time.
"Everyone on our boat has day jobs," Burns said. "We all do it as a hobby, for the love of the sport. You don't just win it (the 36.7 championship) three years back to back to back, especially when you have a big target on your back like we did. It's the crew. With a crew like ours, it's all about having fun at the end of the day."
