Tomorrow, the inaugural Bermuda Short-Handed Return Race will begin. 20 teams are participating to double or singlehanded back to Newport. The race hopes to engender a safe return environment for competitors through tracking and the knowledge that other competitors are on the course to provide assistance if needed. It is also hoped the race will promote greater interest in short-handed sailing, particularly in light of the Olympic interest under discussion.

It is not just those who raced double-handed to Bermuda participating, many multi-crew race boats will race back shorthanded now and some sailors are even switching boats. @AlchemistRacing sponsored by @bluenoseyachts will have a double-handed women's team now of Sara Stone and Kat Hunt, class winner Chris Dragon’s captain Ed Bahen will sail back with Kyle Hubley, and our Inspection Chief, James Phyfe, switches boats to sail back with Thomas Vander Salm on Yankee Girl.
