About Perico...

Perico (pronounced pay-reecoh, rolled r optional) is named after a famous Cuban donkey. Perico became a pet of the town of Santa Clara in the 30's and 40's on retirement from his earlier career pulling an ice cream cart. He spent his retirement years meandering his former ice cream route and graciously accepting offerings of food and beverage from the locals. He was particularly fond of beer and was well-know at many of the local taverns and well-liked by their purveyors and patrons. When he passed in 1947, his obituary was published in the New York Times and a statue in his honor was erected in the town plaza. Perico's spirit lives on in this racing yacht, which counts among her many successes the 2016 Chicago-Mackinac Cruising Division Overall championship. Perico hopes to to get to the island quickly in her first Bayview-Mac, where her crew will graciously accept any and all offerings of beer.
