FAVORITE BITTER END ADVENTURE/EXCURSION
“Full Moon Sails were poetry more than they were real life. Who wouldn’t love cruising around under a full moon, gliding through Caribbean reefs and then stopping on a private island for a bonfire, beers, and live guitar music? Also absolutely loved our infamous Tuesday Beer Can Regattas. Where else in the world would it be legal to be served ice cold, delicious beer while sailing a boat in the middle of the ocean?”
The heart of Watersports and Jerome’s right-hand man (the two of them made up the “Michigan Mafia” duo), the man known to all simply as “Dobbs” left a lasting impression on everybody, thanks to his thoughtful and cheerful attitude. Guests still rave about their experiences daysailing with him on Cosmic Warlord, which he captained often. And he’s the type to take full advantage of every adventure and opportunity. He developed his windsurfing skills, kickstarted the BEYC SUP Yoga program, learned to Scuba Dive and became PADI Open Water Certified--all while working at BEYC. These days, he’s spending more time in the mountainous west than on the Caribbean waters. “After Hurricane Irma my watersports life has tamed a bit, as I am now located 6,000 feet up in the mountains of Park City, Utah.” He does, however, still head out to sail on the Jordanelle Reservoir as much as possible.
