Photos/Video: One-Two Yacht Race Second Leg

June 19, 2015

Over twenty yachts took to the start line of the Bermuda One-Two Yacht Race second leg on Thursday morning [June 18] in St George’s Harbour.

The Bermuda One-Two Race was founded in 1977 by the Society of Lone Offshore Sailors [SOLOS] with solo sailors starting in Newport, Rhode Island heading to St. George’s, Bermuda in a grueling 635-mile single-handed race.

After a few days rest the yachts head back to Newport with the addition of a crew member in a race to the finish.
