DICK CARTER SPEAKS

Yesterday I had the pleasure to listen to Dick Carter talk about the past. Some of which I was present for; in particular the 1969 Admiral’s Cup, in which Red Rooster was the overall winner of the Fastnet Race which secured a team win for the United States.

BERMUDA RACE 2018

THE 2018 BERMUDA RACE HAD A NUMBER OF GATES. AND NO OPPORTUNITIES FOR PASSING. WE NEVER HAD WATER ON DECK, AND NEVER REEFED.

IT DID NOT MATTER IF YOU WENT EAST AT THE START OR WEST; EVERYONE RE-UNITED AT THE NARROW POINT OF THE STREAM.

NO WATER ON DECK
