Buffett performs at Block Island Race Week

From BlockIslandRaceWeek.com: Legendary musician Jimmy Buffett made a surprise appearance at the final awards party for Block Island Race Week, presented by Margaritaville.

Buffett took the stage to address the huge gathering of sailors enjoying Margaritaville margaritas and LandShark lager and expressed total enthusiasm for the regatta his lifestyle company sponsored this year. 

“I think Margaritaville is Block Island right now,” said Buffett, who performed an impromptu concert to cap off Margaritaville Race Day. “I always thought it would be kind of cool to have a regatta that was part of Margaritaville. Thank you Block Island for being the very first one.”

Buffett, performing solo, then launched into renditions of ‘Son of a Sailor’, ‘Margaritaville’ and ‘Five O’Clock Somewhere’ to the delight of the massive crowd jammed into the big top tent.

Several hours earlier, long before Buffett arrived on the island, Kevin McNeil sat on a bench at Payne’s Dock drinking a Mudslide from Mahogany Shoals. The Annapolis skipper was the very picture of exhaustion, relief and satisfaction all rolled into one. 

McNeil and his team aboard Seabiscuit had just captured an incredibly competitive class by winning the eighth and final start at Block Island Race Week, presented by Margaritaville. HeadFirst3, a Canadian entry skippered by Peter Toombs, had given Seabiscuit all it could handle in PHRF 2.
