August 4, 2022 | 0 Comments

The 2022 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 annual Heineken Round the Islands Race is a favorite local sailing fixture. This year we saw a great mix of sailors of all ages in boats ranging from 12 feet to over 40 feet, all enjoying a fun race around the islands of Hamilton Harbor and the Great Sound. Glorious 12 – 16 knot winds from the SW allowed most boats to finish the course in under 1 1/2 hours. We are really happy to have the continued support from lead sponsor, Heineken and Burrows Lightbourn Ltd.”

“In Class 1 [Dinghies], Christian Ebbin and new crew, PJ Rodrigues won their division over Julia Lines, who suffered gear failure in her Sunfish.

“In Class 2 [Keelboats], Craig Davis and his family crew aboard “Vrengen” won Class 2 [Keelboats] and the overall trophy for their win over rival International One Design, “Solna”, sailed by Martin Siese.

“In Class 3 [Classics], Josh Greenslade and his crew abord “Dancer” edged out new entry, “Magic” sailed by Hugo Berney and crew.
