The yachts are moored throughout the harbour with the St. George’s Dinghy & Sports Club and Ordnance Island area providing the best views of the crafts. Bermuda Yacht Services on Ordnance Island who are known to host some of the larger luxury motor yachts also have a dock full of visiting sailors.

Organised by the World Cruising Club, the Arc Europe Rally has two starts; from the Chesapeake on the US East Coast, and from Nanny Cay in Tortola, British Virgin Islands; with the two fleets meeting in Bermuda. They will go on to cruise the Azores before the final voyage to Europe.

The Atlantic Cup Rally starts from Nanny Cay in Tortola, British Virgin Islands and sails first to Bermuda, then on to the US East Coast. Event Manager Lyall Burgess and St. George’s Dinghy & Sports Club Commodore Lacey Jennings took a moment out from the Saturday night Pirate Party to speak with us.
