About Flyin' Irish...
The owner of Flyin' Irish the green hulled J-120 is Bill & Sue Bresser. They have shared their passion for sailing with family and friends for over 40 years.
After Bill’s 25th consecutive Mackinac race in 2006, he decided that driving the crew van wasn’t a bad way to get to the island. To quote him “you should see this van go to weather”. A few years ago a sail maker told one of Bill's sons "your dad really gets what sailboat racing is all about, being competitive and having fun with his friends and family".
With a 1st place finish in 2008 and a 2nd place in 2009 and 2010, Flyin' Irish will be sailing hard to recapture the "gold" in 2011.
The captain this year will be Jerry Bresser, who will be sailing his 28th Mackinac race. Two other crew, Pat Bresser and Hans Brieden will gain "old goat" status as they each sail their 25th race.
The crew of Flyin' Irish would like to take a moment to thank Bill and Sue for making it possible for us to participate in this great sport......We'll see you at the Pony!!!
