We were lame (again) in failing to get this race report from
the the winners of the NYYC Swan 42 Performance Trophy in the Newport
to Bermuda race. Here ya go.
With a 210 pm start, Celeritas favored the pin end, with just 2 other
boats to leeward. Boat speed seemed to suffer a bit in the first hours,
before the decision to tack over and head west. While conventional wisdom
would favor covering the opponents, our navigator Rob made an executive
decision to get west before the Gulf Stream.
