Morgan’s Ghost Appears

On Tuesday, April 29th four of us departed St George’s Harbour aboard Morgan’s Ghost, a Swan Club 42, bound for Newport, Rhode Island. This two-year-old yacht was built for racing – meaning she lacks the comforts of most offshore yachts. She’s light weight (under 14 gross tons) and her deck is open to the elements so we spent the 4.5 day passage harnessed in and holding on. Our 700nm journey was a mix of high seas, strong winds and light breezes so we got the full experience. We arrived at New England Boatworks (NEB) Saturday evening, May 3rd with no damages to report – bruises have yet to be tallied.
Hamilton, Bermuda based Morgan’s Ghost (BER 542) will be among over 200 boats sailing in the famous Newport to Bermuda Race in June.
