Newport to Bermuda Race
Cruising Club of America & Royal Bermuda Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Jun 15-18, 2012 | SRM VII (Swan 601) (Swan 601)
A very fast, fun, and exciting race. Our 5th in Class (Gibb's Hill Lighthouse Division, Class 10 - Maxi racers from 70' to 90') does not tell the full story. We were the smallest, slowest rated boat in our class, and were the only non-planing boat in the Class. We should have been in Gibb's Hill 9 where we would have raced agasint comparable boats and won our class. Still, a quick race, and not at all disappointed with our 8th Overall - out of over 140 Boats.
