Newport Bermuda: Easy sailing so far:
(June 16, 2018) – After a day of relatively light winds in the 51st Newport Bermuda Race, the competitors had made moderate progress down the 635nm course toward the finish line at St. David’s Lighthouse on the northeast corner of Bermuda.
Led by Rambler 88, George David’s 88-foot Juan K design, five boats crossed the Gulf Stream and opened up a significant gap on the rest of the 169-boat fleet, many of whom were sailing in lighter winds.
