Magoo for May

Here is a May 2019 background featuring another great Luis Ferreiro pic from the 2018 Nationals. Dave ‘Magoo’ McKay is of course a legend, buy him a beer and ask him.  Actually he is, he won the World Moth championship and the Australian Yachtsman of the Year back in 1969-70. He’s won lots over the years and still capable of giving you a run for your money in the Js. A fleet owner of course, therefore can be addressed as ‘Admiral’ or simply –  ‘Magoo’.

J24 April Computer Screen Background
