Annapolis Bermuda Ocean Race 2018 Awards
The weather cleared perfectly for a lovely dockside Prizegiving ceremony. The Sailors and their family and friends celebrated their success in an event hosted by local dignitaries including the Governor of Bermuda, Mayor of Hamilton, Ministry of Tourism and US Consul General. The final boat arrived three hours before the festivities began. A Gala dinner under the stars followed. Memories were made, friendships were forged and old ones grew deeper as our second race partnering with the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club.
