    The round the island race must be Bermuda’s best kept secret, I had no idea the race was this weekend until I heard the roar of boats on south shore… Who is the commodore now, do they even have one, do they advertised the race anymore? How did I miss this?

      The publicity in the lead-up this year was definitely a bit low key/non existant .
      However , it’s easy to remember if your a fan. It’s the weekend after Cup Match .

      And I agree with the above who said that it was maybe not the best day for it .
      From where I watched there were many boats already struggling especially the D class cats and by far the roughest water was yet to come .

        Thanks I’ll try to remember that its the weekend after Cup Match, but its nice to hear about it in the days before too. Thanks!

    What is going on, this used to be one of the biggest spectator sports on the island. There was no commercials, no social media buzz, no interviews in the media. At the end of the day the leadership of the sport need to understand that if they are to maintain the sports health on island they have to promote the event. Also sponsors, need to know they are getting bang for their buck. We have reduced one of the island best spectator sport to a non-event.

    the race officals and leadership should be ashamed

      well said i couldn’t put it better my self,they should be ashames of there self,what a joke they maid this race to be, on top of it people on here are saying they should have waited for a better day its off shore racing not lake racing,what are they boys or man when i used to race we race in alot ruffer water then that,these boys don’t know what ruff water is like to race in,what happen to the s class everyone was waiting to see them come across and not one of them started,you all should hang up the boat because none of you know anything about racing boat, you race against 2 boats and you are the best driver in the world a joke,

    I guess even scrutinizing isn’t that serious anymore either. I might be wrong but on boat D 69 where are the registration numbers?..
