Newport Bermuda Race 2006 - "The Race"


The start off Newport, June 16, 2006




















Above, the start of one of the larger classes, and above right, Mark and Melanie Preston are out watching the action.



















Fleet Surgeon Garry Fischer aboard DIVA at the start, and Howard Eisenberg aboard ISOLA wait for their class guns.

The Concordia Dame of Sark heads out for the Gulf Stream on the first day of the race; Esmeralde heads east under Code 0 on day 2.






















This little guy whacked Dorsey in the chest as she stood in the companionway in the dark of night.  Couldn't figure out what it was until it started to smell, and we turned on the lights to see what had happened...



















Above and left, after two days of terrific beam-reach sailing, we landed in the parking lot south of the Gulf Stream with LOTS of other boats, and bobbed around for about a day and a half...
