NEIYA GOES TO BERMUDA
Tomorrow is the start of the Newport to Bermuda Race, looks like a light air start with some big northerlies waiting out in the Gulf Stream…. Gonna be a bumpy ride for awhile out there!
A few NEIYA members will be headed for the tiny island-
Regatta Chairman Oliver Moore will be aboard AUGUST WEST, a J-122. He will be trimmer and in charge of keeping things tidy.
Steve and James Lamb will be aboard a big red Swan called WHIZZ. Just kidding, it’s called LADY B. Steve has signed on as chef (seriously) and James will be doing everything else.
Russ Hancock and Jonathan Green will be aboard JEROBOAM in the 17 boat double-handed fleet. These guys will both be busy as they will be the only two people on the boat!
If I left anyone out be sure to let me know!
Be sure to follow them on the tracker- the link is below.
Hope y’all have a great race- be safe, go fast, and check in along the way if you can! And if it gets hot out, THINK ICE!
