Bermuda to Newport 2007

My captain and I departed Bermuda early Sunday, May 20th to sail 700nm in four days (171nm,184nm,176nm,169nm), arriving in Newport, Rhode Island on Thursday morning, May 24th.

This trip laid my doubts to rest. It IS possible to have a comfortable Bermuda/Newport route passage. Despite cold air that kept us in foul weather gear and unusual patches of light air, it was our easiest and fastest (out of four) trip to date.

Special thanks to our Bermudian friends, especially Bermuda Yacht Services, for making our latest stay on their beautiful yachtie-friendly island so pleasurable.
