Photos/Video: Newport Boats At RBYC & RHADC

June 23, 2022 | 3 Comments

More than 150 boats that took part in the Newport Bermuda Race have arrived in Bermuda, resulting in boats berthed at both the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club [RBYC] and the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club [RHADC] and you can take a bird’s eye view via the aerial footage below.

The race got underway on Friday [June 17], with the 187 strong fleet starting the 635-nautical mile ocean race, with this year seeing the first ever Saturday finisher, with Argo setting a new record time of only 33 hours.

According to the organisers, the biennial Newport Bermuda Race — which was founded in 1906 — is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean race, one of very few international distance races, and one of just two of the world’s regularly scheduled races held almost entirely out of sight of land.

This race marks the latest international sailing fleet to visit the island this month, as it follows after the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race fleet visited the island, marking their first ever stop in Bermuda.

Update: Apparently it is the third international fleet this month, apologies for the error, we corrected above.

    Actually the third international sailing race this month. Annapolis to Bermuda was the beginning of June.

    Great images…but…

    “This race marks the second international sailing fleet to visit the island this month, as it follows after the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race fleet visited the island, marking their first ever stop in Bermuda.”

    This isn’t true, The Annapolis to Bermuda Race Fleet was here in early June.

    Thanks, fixed. Apologies for the error, we forgot about that one as they are more low key… so flew under radar. However fixed it. That said, thanks to the photog for the excellent effort covering the two fleets . Patricia
