The 2020 Heineken Round the Islands Race organized by the Bermuda Sailing Association [BSA] saw 19 boats hit the starting line last Thursday.

A spokesperson said, “The 2020 Heineken Round the Islands Race organized by the Bermuda Sailing Association [BSA] saw 19 boats hit the starting line last Cup Match Thursday. A mixture of sailors of all ages in boats ranging from 12 feet to over 40 feet enjoyed a fun race around the islands of Hamilton Harbor and the Great Sound.

“The usual post race BBQ was unable to happen this year but a safe, socially distanced prize presentation took place on Tuesday evening at the RBYC. BSA President, Neil Redburn, awarded prizes to the class winners and thanked sponsors Burrows Lightbourne and Heineken for their support which has spanned many years. He also thanked Tom Clarke for acting as Race Officer for the day.

“In Class 1 [Dinghies], Christian Ebbin and Magnus Ringsted debuted in their first regatta sailing a 29’er Dinghy after graduating from the Optimist Class and took home a pair of gift certificates from Making’ Waves.

“Matin Siese and Patrick Cooper won Class 2 [Keelboats] and the overall trophy for their win in the International One Design, “Solna”. In Class 3 [Classics] Hubert Watlington’s 150 year old “Shamrock” once again ruled the waves.
