Marion Bermuda Race

‘Jambi’, a new Hinckley Bermuda 50 skippered by John Levinson crossed the finish line off St. David’s Lighthouse at 12:47:00 to take line honors in the 40th Anniversary Marion Bermuda Race. ‘Jambi’ had an unofficial elapsed time of 4 days 23 hours 36 minutes 11 seconds.

Levinson said he has done the trip six or seven times and the entire crew had done many Bermuda Races, too. This was the first for his new Bermuda 50 to leave the US. ‘Jambi’ was a “wind machine,” he said, “outstanding, flawless.”

“There was no wind for most of the race.” He said. “The beginning and the end were fantastic” with good wind then. “Total calm and then nice wind, total calm, nice wind… not rough weather.”

“ We saw a lot of boats every day,” a crewmate chimed in. “The race started over again every day.”

“The best thing on the race,” Levinson said, “was moving ahead at night because it happened a bunch of times. Boats would catch up during the day then we would do it again. We worked hard at night.”

‘Lady Georgina’ finished second at 13:09:48 with an elapsed time of 5 days 14 minutes 48 seconds or 120 hours 14 minutes 48 Seconds.
