SV Silver Girl

Robert Bryce in front of the schooner "Silver Girl', named after the Simon & Garfunkel song 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters'. She was made famous in San Francisco years ago for having won the Master Mariner's regatta, which was a wilful error on the part of the Yacht Club that was tired of 'Wanderbird' winning it repeatedly. Her tender was the scatologically-named 'Breaking Wind'.

 

Nelligen Yacht Club's Commodore, Secretary, Treasurer and only-Member unanimously admitted Robert Bryce as Honorary (but not necessarily honorable) Member.

Robert used to own SV Silver Girl, however, both he and she are now in drydock, he mainly at the not-so-dry Savusavu Yacht Club in Fiji.

However, he's just now relaunched his maritime career in a more modest manner:

Welcome to the Club, Robert! May you pass only fair winds whilst in the head.
