Sail-World.com : Newport Bermuda Race - No single winner determined
Newport Bermuda Race - No single winner determined

'George David’s 90ft maxi Rambler smashed the 635 mile Newport Bermuda Race record, clipping a massive 14 hours off the previous best time set 10 years ago by Roy Disney’s Pyewacket. The new outright record now stands at 39hr, 39 minutes, 18 seconds - an average speed of 16knots.'    Barry Pickthall/PPL ©    Click Here to view large photo

In the 2012 Newport Bermuda Race, no single boat has emerged as the winner. This classic ocean race has five divisions and sixteen classes. The 166 boats entered in 2012 raced for over 100 trophies including five major division trophies under the Offshore Racing Rule (ORR) system, and one major prize for IRC that combines most boats in the St. David’s and Gibbs Hill Divisions that choose to be dual scored. There was also one prize for the Spirit of Tradition Division. Winners in the 17 classes won perpetual trophies and up to 4-deep keepers based on the number of boats in the class.

The St. David’s Lighthouse is often regarded as the main trophy because that division is the largest with 93 boats, and because it carries on the founder's aim to get amateurs sailing offshore in cruising-racing boats. Winning any division is worth bragging rights.

In the St. David’s Lighthouse Division for the St. David’s Lighthouse Trophy, Carina, the McCurdy & Rhodes 48, sailed by Rives Potts (Westbrook CT), finished at 18:16:59 Monday. Her corrected time was 45:08:16. This division is for mostly amateur crews.
