Newport Bermuda Race

Sailing Race

Rhode Island, US – The Newport Bermuda Race sailed out of Newport Rhode Island a few days ago with sailboats ranging from 100′ mega-yachts to family sailboats.

The Newport Bermuda Race is organized by the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. The race is handicapped with ORR (Offshore Racing Rule) and IRC. The course was from Newport to Bermuda with a first warning gun firing on Friday, June 20, 2008.

The Sail boats sailed from Newport all the way to Bermuda in the Newport Bermuda Race. The maxi yacht Speedboat crossed the line in Bermuda first, then came the boat Rambler.

Following the Newport Bermuda Race, Speedboat will head north and the crew will be on standby for the right weather window to scream across the Pond and try to break the Trans-Atlantic sailing record.
