#BermudaBound! Meet Polaris (formerly St. Jude) a Sydney 47, purchased by Bermuda Race veteran, Will Passano, sight unseen from Noel Cornish, commodore of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and a successful Sydney Hobart racer. She arrived over Thanksgiving in Baltimore on a car carrier that came via Japan with 6500 cars. She will be reassembled in Annapolis, sail locally in the spring, and then compete in the Annapolis to Newport, Marblehead Halifax and Edgartown races. If Covid restrictions permit, Polaris will also head south in a year’s time for the Caribbean 600 before returning to the States in time for the 2022 Newport Bermuda Race.⠀

Read the full story and watch Polaris' journey on our website. Link in profile.⠀

Thanks to all the crew members sending us tributes to legends in the Bermuda Race. This one from Howard Coon is of Sailing Hall of Famer, John Bonds, doing his thing in the Nav station of the J-44, Gold Digger in 2006. Bonds was instrumental in shaping and requiring Safety at Sea Seminars to make ocean races like Newport-Bermuda safer for everyone. ⠀
