For Women's History Month we'd like share a piece of Bermuda Race history with you! This is Thora Lund Robinson, age 20, she was the first woman to join the Bermuda Race on its opening day in 1906! At that time most people thought it was insane for any man to race across an ocean let alone a woman. But that didn't stop her! Cheers to Thora! ⠀
