leg, it may be time for celebration, relaxation and reflection on a job well-done! In fact, this may be the first time that any boat sailing the classic Bermuda One-Two Race has ever won both elapsed, corrected and overall honors on both legs!
If some of you recall, the Bermuda One-Two is one of the classic short-handed races in the summer northeastern offshore sailing schedule, especially for those who love the challenge of short-handed sailing. It's a race many sailors look forward to in between the Storm Trysail's fully-crewed version that takes place in even years. For most, the "odd years" sailing from Newport to Bermuda outbound single-handed and returning on the summer solstice from Bermuda to Newport sailing double-handed, is the ultimate test of sailing skill.
Congratulations again to Scott and George on their formidable accomplishment and proof, yet again, the J/122 is an easy boat to sail short-handed offshore in such a forgiving fast boat (note- read the story below about sailing the J/122 in "darwinian sailing conditions!).
