Tropical Storm Michael, the 13th named storm of the hurricane season, has formed in the Atlantic as of 11 a.m. Tuesday. The storm poses no threat to land at the moment. Tropical Storm Leslie, meanwhile, is struggling to Michael's west but could still become a hurricane that could affect Bermuda. Michael had 40 mph winds as of Tuesday morning, and was 1,200 miles southwest of the Azores, in the middle of the ocean. The storm is expected to move slowly northward but isn't much of a concern.

For midshipman Duncan Mamer, the skipper of a Navy 44, the waiting was the hardest part of the 19th biennial Annapolis-Bermuda Race. "The prevailing conditions for this race were mostly just lots and lots of light air," said Mamer, a Caldwell, Iowa, resident and rising senior on the Naval Academy's varsity offshore sailing team. "Whether it was on the Chesapeake [Bay] or half an hour from the finish line, we definitely spent our fair share of time drifting around. "The biggest challenge was definitely just always trying to keep the boat moving.

"I feel like a lot of it is just a load of crap. " So much for Emily staying in her hometown for "The Bachelorette" -- this week her and the remaining 13 contestants head to Bermuda for this round of dates. And all those undeserving tool bags get to stay at Rosewood Tucker's Point -- the most beautiful (and expensive) resort on the island (the cheapest room is $600 a night). If we sound bitter, we are. We're going to Bermuda for our honeymoon in October … but we won't be staying at Rosewood Tucker's Point.

FRISCO, Texas - Towson trailed North Dakota State, 21-7, at halftime of Saturday's Football Championship Subdivision title game, but nothing took more of a beating than the turf at Toyota Stadium. The Bermuda-grass field at the 20,500-seat facility was constantly getting dug up by players, and as many as 40 staffers from the stadium and the NCAA flooded the field in between changes of possessions to stamp down the turf. Towson running backs Terrance West and Darius Victor each tripped on separate running plays in the second and third quarter, and Bison senior quarterback Brock Jensen had to jump on one loose chunk of grass before lining up under center in the third period.

THE DISSONANCE was stunning -- and telling. While President Bush was professing outrage Tuesday over corporate America's excesses and appealing to CEOs' morality and patriotism, many of his Republican colleagues in the House were lining up behind a bill to bar U.S. firms from receiving some federal contracts if they have reincorporated offshore -- a growing problem that the president did not even bother to mention in his Wall Street sermon. The congressional effort to stem this outrageous tax dodge by some of the nation's most prominent companies is laudable.

Bermuda is a classic cruise spot for travelers looking to soak up those last rays of sun before winter arrives. With its pink-sand beaches and sparkling blue water, it's no wonder that Bermuda repeatedly ranks high on travelers' "must see" lists. Ships dock at ports in Hamilton, King's Wharf or St. George's. Here are five things to do in and around Bermuda: 1 Boogie on the beach : The 13th annual Bermuda Music Festival is a four-night outdoor concert series, beginning Wednesday. The four-night outdoor concert series features performances by such big-name artists as Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Aaron Neville, The Whispers and UB40.

The footsteps on the cobblestone path were the first indication that breakfast was arriving. Then a figure in white, topped by a tall chef's hat and carrying two wicker baskets, emerged from around the cottage's side. With a broad smile, giving way to a cheerful British accent, he said "Good day," and, in typical Bermuda fashion, "all the best."One basket was brimming with fresh, just-out-of-the-oven muffins, buns, sweet rolls and still-steaming croissants. The other held a bounty of island fruits and the morning's edition of Bermuda's delightfully informative Royal Gazette.

Bermuda has long been a fashionable resort for honeymooners, golfers and the well-heeled, but few think of it as a place to bring children.True, Bermuda is formal, and, some say, more British than Great Britain, but it also is one of the safest foreign experiences you can give a child.A self-governing British colony with one of the highest per-capita incomes in the world, Bermuda is definitely in the pink. The archipelago of tiny islands in the Atlantic, east of the Carolinas, boasts no unemployment, illiteracy or income tax. There isn't any litter, either.

Tim Troy, 45, of Crownsville has won the Bermuda 1-2, a 1,270-mile race from Newport, R.I., to Bermuda and back that concluded Monday. The race was a single-handed competition from Narragansett Bay to Bermuda, but double-handed on the return, in which Troy was joined by Neal Petersen of South Africa. They completed the 635-mile leg in 73 1/2 hours. Troy's Open 60, Margaret Anna, defeated 31 other boats. On the solo leg, completed in 75 hours, 13 minutes, Troy docked in Bermuda June 17. "At the start of the race, the winds were real light, and then I was dealing with 15-foot seas and had to make 10 different sail changes in one night," he said.

Maryland skipped over spring and went straight to summer-like weather Tuesday, as a "Bermuda high" system more common to June or July created a chance for record-breaking heat on Wednesday. Temperatures reached 85 degrees at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and 89 degrees in downtown Baltimore on Tuesday. That is 20 degrees above normal, and even more of a departure from what has been a chilly spring - March was, on average, colder than December. The long wait for warmth meant Baltimoreans flocked to the outdoors.

Nothing could be more middle-class than a cruise ship vacation. The telltale signs are all present: the women for whom decollete ceased to be advisable some years previously, the teenage girls teetering on high heels while chewing gum, the men wearing their caps at table, the "formal" dinner nights (must wear shoes), and, in the casual dining area, the plate piled high from the third trip to the buffet. Middle-class to the core, I enjoy it. So when Kathleen's parents decided to celebrate their turning eighty with a family cruise to Bermuda, twelve of us altogether, I signed up gladly.

For visitors it's like entering a fairy-tale world, a marzipan island of pastel houses, powder-pink beaches, golf courses as green as shamrocks, and flowers and shrubs in exuberant profusion.The pace is unhurried, the air fragrant, the sun generous. True, the weather can be spotty and the coral reefs treacherous but, on the whole, Bermuda is a pleasing respite from the real world.I spent five days in Bermuda, staying in cottage colonies in Paget, a popular tourist area, as well as a small hotel in the capital city of Hamilton.

It's an island that measures only 21 square miles, about the size of Manhattan. But instead of skyscrapers packed in like sardines, imagine miles and miles of sparkling cerulean water and pink-glittered sand. Replace the honking yellow cabs with pastel pink buses nimbly navigating hairpin curves. Trade boroughs for parishes and skip Queens in favor of King's Wharf. Finally, jettison North America and set up shop in the Atlantic Ocean. Welcome to Bermuda. Whether you come by plane — new nonstop flights from Baltimore can get you here almost as fast as you can get to New York — or by boat — Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruise lines offer seasonal sailings to Bermuda — is up to you. The longer you can stay, the more you'll see. But if you have only a weekend — or if you have just two days in port, like I did when I took the Carnival Pride on a seven-day cruise to the island this year — it's going to take some planning to hit the highlights.
