Trophies awarded in all but 1 class in Bermuda Race

June 22, 1992|By Nancy Noyes | Nancy Noyes,Contributing Writer

Trophies were awarded last night in five of the six classes racing in this year's 753-mile Bermuda Ocean Race from Annapolis to St. George's, Bermuda, which began June 13, although at least three boats from Class 5 were still racing and had not finished as of 7:30 p.m. EDT.

The first team to finish, Gibson Island sailor George Collins and the crew aboard his Tripp 47 Moxie, arrived a few minutes after midnight Thursday morning with an elapsed time of a little more than 110 hours, but many of the rest of the 47-boat fleet, having struggled to exit the Chesapeake Bay in light air before meeting a virtual millpond on the Atlantic, continued to struggle to reach Bermuda late yesterday afternoon.

The remaining boats are expected today, and the results, including those for Class 5, the Electronic Marine Inc. Bay Trophy for the fastest transit of the Chesapeake, and the traditional Cook's Trophy to the cook aboard the last to finish, will be awarded after all have arrived.
