It was slow going at the end when Shindig took Line Honors in the 2013 Marion Bermuda Race. According to finish line chairman Eugene Rayner, the big blue Andrews 68 finished the 645 nm course at 4:55:13 ADT/3:55:13 EDT on Tuesday morning June 18. Although this looked to be a fast race for the first 48 hours, it became painfully slow as the boat inched its way in the last 100 miles approaching Bermuda.

Shindig, skippered by Michael Reney and sailed by a crew of cadets from Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the former owner, Arthur Burke of Dartmouth, and the MMA coach Chuck Fontaine and a handful of experienced crew have pushed Shindig hard through a difficult race.

Lady B, the second boat is approaching the finish. She is a Swan 62 skippered by John Madden.

The fleet behind her is spread out across the original race rhumb line looking for wind. Handicap honors are still up for grabs in the three Founders division classes and the division itself.

Spectators at home or on mobile devices with the proper app can follow all the yachts in the Marion Bermuda Race on the YellowBrick tracker program sponsored by Kingman Yacht Center.
