It showed “what a fabulous venue Bermuda is to run international sailing competitions and for a SailGP event, it is absolutely perfect,” SailGP CEO Sir Russell Coutts said following the conclusion of the Bermuda Sail Grand Prix presented by Hamilton Princess, which saw the British Team claim the victory.

Speaking after the event concluded on Sunday, SailGP CEO Sir Russell Coutts: “It just showed again what a fabulous venue Bermuda is to run international sailing competitions and for a SailGP event, it is absolutely perfect.

“We missed the crowds due to the current pandemic but everyone saw what the racing was like and what a stunning backdrop Bermuda is and that’s the main thing. I couldn’t be more thrilled with Bermuda and we certainly want to come back for many years to come.”

      Totally agree. The vision to set up Dockyard the way it has been will bode well for Bermuda for years to come, but unfortunately some may still disagree, although not nearly as much moaning anymore.
