Dear Sir,

I have to commend our tourism minister, Zane DeSilva, for his recent efforts in Monaco to encourage billionaires to bring their superyachts to Bermuda.

Indeed, he was able to tell the audience about the success of the 35th America’s Cup, which was hosted in Bermuda in 2017.

He alluded to the tremendous success of this particular event, which surprised me, as the PLP was so much against the America’s Cup, stating it was a “white man’s sport” — their words, not mine.

The word “hypocrite” comes to mind.
