Bermuda 1-2: Leg 1
The original intent of event organizers was to formulate a race that would be attractive to racing and cruising sailors alike who seek the adventure, camaraderie and experience of single-handedly undertaking a 635-mile blue-water passage. It is an event designed to accommodate and challenge both single-handed cruisers and racers alike. The race is sailed in two parts: Leg One by a lone skipper from Newport to Bermuda, and, following a brief layover, Leg Two back Newport with one crew member – hence the origin of the event’s name.
Although Phil will be the only sailor physically aboard when Cepheus departs Newport on June 4, 2021, he’ll also be sailing for our crew of Virtual Shipmates who have decided to take 1MoreStep towards living a fuller life, despite being effected by epilepsy.
