    Its just amazing the coverage this race series is will get and how Bermuda will be showcased as a result.

    The images of Bermuda will be stunning to everyone watching.

    Has Bermuda ever had such global coverage (for the right reasons!)?

    pretty impressive list … got to be good for Bda

  4. Granted, it’s an inpressive list, though I’m somewhat disappointed not seeing nor hearing more of the A.C. taking place in Bermuda so that it can encourage the so called, “common folks” to the Island to view such an event. Yes, those in the marinas and boat clubs are aware of the A.C. but the layman aren’t and should have been made aware with more advertizing like TV, radio and posters at airports…but, one doesn’t see or hear of any :-(
