Yesterday, the Governor of Bermuda 🇧🇲, Rena Lalgie walked the docks of @royalbermudayc chatting with the sailors, particularly the youth sailors of the @ratzracing about their initiatives. ...

John Browning is the current living record holder for the most Bermuda Races with 27. Second to Jim Mertz with 30 but he has “sailed his last Bermuda Race” as they say. He has never sailed it on his own boat and the boat he crewed in this year, JCurve, almost never made it to the starting line.

Listen to this great interview over some @goslingsrum for some great stories. Link in bio to our YouTube page.

Since the tragic loss of Colin Golder on Sunday and our statement that evening, the ensign at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club has flown at half-mast and been solemnly observed by members and visiting sailors at colours each evening.

The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee has stayed in contact with Mr. Golder’s family and the crew of the 42-foot Morgan of Marietta, which has returned safely to the mainland.

During this time, we have reached out to the leadership of @USSAILING, the national governing body for the sport in the U.S., and encouraged the appointment of an independent panel to review what happened and publish a report to help all sailors learn from the loss of Mr. Golder. US Sailing will announce the appointment of a panel in due course.

While words are inadequate at a time like this, we extend our deepest sympathies to Mr. Golder’s family, friends, and crew as we await the report of the US Sailing panel.
