Bill (Wags) Wagner is a familiar face on the docks to sailors at Quantum Key West Race Week. A Maryland native, Wags hits the docks early, with FlipCamera in hand to capture casual interviews from sailors across all classes. Wags really presents a personal side to the interviews capturing “a behind the scenes” story.

Today’s interviews include:
Kevin George, tactician aboard Ker 51 Tonnerre 4, talks about the boat that Peter Vroon is racing for the first time in Key West and also talks about what a great yachtsman the Dutch skipper is.
Doug and Dalton DeVos, father and son, talk about racing against each other in the Melges 32 class.
I have worked with Wags over 10 years at Key West, and can attest to his commitment to “tell the story” of Race Week through video interviews, press releases and articles. I have also been a witness to his incredible typing speed. Wags can “punish” a keyboard better than any journalist I’ve ever known!
