Suns out, buns out: This is the summer of the beach thong. At least that’s true of the heavenly bodies belonging to models such as Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid.

Led by Spithill, the Team Falcon crew included Shannon Falcone of Antigua; Rome Kirby of Newport, Rhode Island, USA; Tommy Loughborough of Singapore; Cy Thompson of the Virgin Islands; and Bermuda’s own Emily Nagel, a member of Team Bermuda in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.
