Today, US Sailing, the national governing body for sailing in the U.S, released the report requested by the Bermuda Race Organizing Committee regarding the tragedy that occurred during the running of the 52nd Newport Bermuda Race.

The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee would like to thank US Sailing and the expert investigation panel members who have devoted their knowledge and experience to fully studying the tragic loss of Mr. Colin Golder.

Our deepest condolences remain with the family and crew of Morgan of Marietta. We encourage our sailing community to fully read US Sailing's report and find ways to realize the recommendations in all of our boating activities.
