The first leg of the 2021 Bermuda One-Two Yacht Race is officially over, with 19 boats finishing the race and an additional two having motored for a total of 21 boats arriving in St. George.

A spokesperson said, “The first leg of the 2021 Bermuda One-Two is officially over. The awards were held Tuesday evening after dinner at the St. George’s Dinghy and Sports Club.

“Nineteen boats finished the race with an additional two having motored for a total of 21 boats arriving in St. George.

“Several boats were noteworthy. Dragon sailed by Michael Hennessey won his class 5 and first to finish in two races in a row; 2019 and 2021. Corvus sailed by Chris Terajewicz won his class 2 and was second overall on corrected time both in 2019 and 2021.

“Noteworthy is the number of skippers running this race for the first time and placing. First overall on corrected time was new to this race Reveille Jim Hammitt, who also won his class 3. All class 3 places were new boats to this race; Dauntless Matthew Breuer in second and Glory Lance Ryley in third.

“In Class 1, first timers Alchemy David Southwell, first, and Cepheus Phil Haydon, third, placed. In class 4, first timer Highlander Jonathan Bixby placed third. In class 2, first timers Young American Peter Becker placed first in class, with Topaz Loren Brindze finishing third. It was a longer race than normal with nice winds until they hit the Bermuda High, which really slowed down the race.

“The return start to Newport, RI is scheduled for June 17. The boats pick up a return crew person in Bermuda and sail back doublehanded. We pick up an additional boat Luna, sailed by skipper Alessandro Pagani.”
