National Heroes Day
Monday and no work for me as today is Bermuda National Heroes Day. Yep thank you dear old Dame Lois Browne
, the countries first female barrister and first female Attorney General was chosen as Bermuda's 2008 national hero, the first one. Next year Shaun Goater. Only joking. Problem with this holiday is that next year the government has moved the Queen's Birthday, previously another national holiday, to the 2nd Saturday in June. Oh well, think we'll go for a bit of lunch and a massage later. There's a lot of tension in these there shoulders!
Yesterday afternoon we were invited out on a boat to watch the final rounds of the oldest match racing sailing competition in the world. Since 1937 the King Edward VII Gold Cup
has been contested out on Hamilton Harbour and Ben Ainslie and others have been racing here all week. It was fun and I'll write more on it and download some photos later in the week.
This is a busy week on the island with the PGA Grand Slam of Golf
on Tuesday and Wednesday, today is the practice round. It's being held at the private Mid Ocean Golf Club
in Tuckers Town. Padraig Harrington, Trevor Immelman, Jim Furyk and Retief Goosen's are all here and the tournament is only open to the winners of the four major championships. No Tiger unfortunately. Whilst on topic, come on Seve, you can do it
I will be at the golf on Wednesday and for some unknown reason we have some clients on the island this week, one of whom I'm seeing for dinner tonight, but time for a rub down first!
