Start Day dawned with clear blue skies and a light breeze.Perfect weather!It is always sad to be leaving the charming and stunningly beautiful island of Bermuda and especially St. George’s Town, but even more so when the sun is shining as it was for today's start of ARC Europe! Boats made their final preparations around 1000 ready for the start at 1100 local time. Due to the inclement weather earlier in the week all the boats were either at anchor or on the Town Quay dock so it was an easy task to make their way to the starting area.Meanwhile it's a non-competitive leg for the ARC USA fleet making their way to East Coast and some of the boats departed yesterday and some early this morning to get a head start on the 650NM trip.Vela was the first through the cut, and the team and...
