RPYC to Bermuda Rally - May 19-June 12, 2022

Although not a club-sponsored activity, this adventure was undertaken by several RPYC members in a fleet of 3 boats (First Light, Lizzie's Teau, and Osprey), each with a crew of 4. After months of planning and extensive preparations the small fleet set off from Regent Point Marina on May 19th, staying one night in Hampton before passing through Norfolk into open ocean and beginning the 5-day voyage to Bermuda.
