On the Bay
A record-breaking fleet of 264 yachts set off for Bermuda on June 16 in the 16 division Newport to Bermuda centennial race. Over the course of the 634-mile race, the goal of many teams was to finish in the money and bring home some silver. For others, this race was their "right of passage," and the excitement of participating in such a historic race was reward enough. Whatever each teams goals and dreams were, all of them had to face challenges. This year was no different. Added to picking the most advantageous point of entry into the Gulf Stream was the challenge of lack of wind for most of the race. Every Bermuda Race is a true navigator's race, but when the wind is as light as this year's race, the skills of a team's navigator takes on even more importance.
