Day Two saw the fleet of 169 boats in the 51st Newport Bermuda Race continue their track toward Bermuda.
Leading the pack is Rambler skippered by George David, David Askew sailing Wizard is second, while Warrior skippered by Steve & Stephen Murray, Sr. & Jr is currently in third place.
Sailors have been Texting and Tweeting, Andy Burton say’s Life on Masquerade is pretty nice right now. After an incredible cool night of sailing 8-9 knots through the stars, we are trying to keep speed above 6.5 with our tiny cruising kite. But the weather is sunny and warm and we’re not bouncing around too much. Sam Howell, our navigator is below trying to decide what we should do next. This is the kind of race that turns navigators into men’s hair club clients! Yesterday morning we thought there was a good possibility the race committee would have to postpone for lack of breeze, but it filled in and the start went off.
