Obama: Bucc 18 Sales Signal Recovery
President Obama and the Governors of both California and Arizona hailed the recent sales of Buccaneers between AZ and CA as proof that President Obama’s economic reforms are producing intended positive results.
“Matt Davis is a force I tell you! It’s outstanding to see these boats off the pavement and on the water. That’s what our policies are all about! More sailing for everyone!”, said presidential spokesperson and former Bucc owner Rob Gibbs.
At the center of this action is Matt Davis who sails out of Arizona Yacht Club in AZ in the winter and White Trash Yacht Club in OR in the summer. His first move was bringing famed Bucc #5100 “Blur” back to racing action as the renamed “Slur.” And then if that wasn’t enough, he loved sailing Bucc’s so much he upgraded to #5250, “Wonderful” and brought her off her sleepy TTL pavement home to sail in the recent San Diego NOOD Regatta.
Davis then spun a web of deals with the State of California to send “Slur” on to Bakersfield, CA and new Bucc owner and long time AYC member Dennis Martinelli of Spira/Martinelli fame. California Governor Jerry Brown lauded the event. “The entire Central Valley will turn out when “Slur” makes its way to its new home here in Bakersfield!” “I wish Harry Sindle could be here to witness this event!”
And if that weren’t enough to show that the recession is over, Arizonan Ramon Rivera is now the proud owner of #4346 “Hailey’s Comet”. The “Comet” has had a long journey from TX, to Phoenix, to Lake Havasu City, and back to Phoenix. Along the way she lost her “Tomato” spinnaker but gained a spinnaker launch chute and Ramon is ready to get her racing again. Ramon and Coronado 15 sailor Marcos Monetti (soon ALSO to be a Bucc owner we expect) will be campaigning “Comet” in Arizona Fleet racing….and….you just may see her crossing the border to California too!
Welcome new Bucc owners!
Matt Davis – #5250, “Wonderful” (for now)
Dennis Martinelli – #5100, “Slur”
Ramon Rivera – #4346, “Hailey’s Comet”
