takes 4th in Class (IRC) in the 2006 Newport Bermuda
ESMERALDE sailed in the Double-Handed class of
the Newport-Bermuda Race...the only husband & wife team
we know of! We came in 4th in class (IRC scoring). This is the 100th anniversary of the first Bermuda Race,
which was held in 1906. 250 boats started: the
largest fleet in the history of the race.

ESMERALDE has a berth deep in the pack here at the
docks. It's great fun as participants and visitors
walk the docks and stop by to talk.
