Chairman’s Holiday Message
The holiday season is a time for thanks, a time for reflection and a time for gathering with friends, family and loved ones. During the holidays we remember others who have passed on and others less fortunate.
2017 was a difficult year for many in the Caribbean Islands far to the south of Bermuda. We are thankful that our island paradise was spared, but cognizant of those less fortunate whose lives and property were so dramatically affected.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they continue to put their communities back together.
On a positive note we have heard of many sailors persisting in their plans to visit and enjoy the Caribbean and support their economies. Of particular note was the RORC Transatlantic Race which includes the Anniversary-Regatta. Now that the boats are in the Caribbean they will be making their way north through the islands and coming to participate in the 2018 Newport Bermuda Race before crossing back across the Atlantic.
2018 is going to be a better year, and a great year.
I would like to wish you all, wherever you may be, at sea, at anchor or ashore, a very Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday and all the very best wishes for 2018.
2018 Newport Bermuda Race Chairman
