Starting line boat at Newport Bermuda Race

Visit our Media Room for the latest in Photos and Videos for the Bermuda Race.

This is the first N2B for QUERENICA, a Chesapeake-based X4.3 crewed by friends with a mix of sailing experience, including several with previous class wins in the Bermuda Race on other boats and several doing the race for the first time.

The boat name, a frequent source of questions, is a metaphysical concept in Spanish that roughly translates to 'one's lair or place where one's strength is drawn from, where you feel your most authentic self'.

"All of us feel fortunate to be able to participate in the race and are looking forward to joining everyone in June."
