Q8 To Be Frank



"On a Quest for the perfect pour"

Featuring an exotic blend of youthful wisdom and elder energy, fermented in the cauldron of the Etchells bilge, team “To Be Frank” has been dragged away from the depths of the Amazonia cellars to bring a wonderful “Grand Cru-ew” to the 24 hour race. Pouring instructions: Decant on one of the two motherships for 3-4 hours and serve in a large Dinghy with plenty of room to swash. 22-23 degrees and 8-10knts for best results.

Although the members of team “To Be Frank” come from a wide background of fleets, they are all on the same page about one fact: everyone is here for a good time in the name of charity!

Under the guidance of our Great Glorious Fearless Leader Kim Jong Bo, the team has assembled a crack group of bell climbers for this very special mission. To list just a few:

- Emily “Jack Ryan” Randall
- The Muscles from Brussels 2.0: Turmeric Gillard
- SH “2 Teams, 2 Birthdays” Panda
- Favorite Sakai Sibling #1 Akiko (Favorite Sakai Siblings #2 through #5, Gigi, AK, Riri and Flap… unavailable)
- Francesco Bruni’s role-model growing up / Defender of pizza modesty from the ill-virtuous pineapples: Michelangelo Valenti
- Nick “Pole Baaaaaaaaaaack” Burns
- Head of Mothership Security: Richie Allen
- Flag Bearer/Wearer: Liz Wai
- Team Nipper: Charlie Robinson
- Team Nippers-in-Training: Raya Sun (aged 7) and Juno Sun (aged 6)
- Team Write Up Laureat and Alcohol Strategist: Luke Kampervan
- And providing wisdom, advice and hopefully a lot of cuvee, RHKYC Commodore: Denis Martinet!

Swing by the team "To Be Frank" motherships and come join our party. Our generous sponsors from To Be Frank will be offering up delicious samples of their new vodka based product: Long Whites!
