Steeped in history, the colourful island of Bermuda, and more specifically the town of St. George’s awaits the arrival of the ARC Europe 2022 fleet. Having departed Sint Maarten on Saturday 7 May and with a passage of 875NM to travel, the journey has been fast with good winds from the south which will see the first of the fleet completing leg 1 in just 4 days. With the winds continuing to remain favourable, most of the fleet expect to arrive to St. George’s Harbour by the beginning of the weekend.
Being a central location, the stopover in Bermuda also plays host to yachts joining the fleet from mainland USA. The yellow shirt team have already welcomed several yachts to the Rally and are on hand to finalise the last of the checks before participants can enjoy the island and ARC Europe programme ahead.
The first event in the ARC Europe programme will be welcome drinks in the St George’s Dingy & Sports Club. Located towards the cut of the harbour participants can enjoy the fabulous view across the water looking back towards to the town and St David’s Island.
Including the new arrivals, the ARC Europe 2022 fleet will become 31 boats strong with some 100 participants in total. As boats and crews come together over the next few days, there is sure to be a lively atmosphere around the Docks in St George’s.
