Bermuda Trio Pass Windsurfing Instructor Course

IslandStats.com
Adriana Penruddocke, Nancy Rickmann, Jade Smith, and Moriah Wheddon have all completed a course and qualified as Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Start Windsurfing Instructors under the watchful eyes of Simon Winkley RYA Windsurf Trainer, and RYA Windsurf Trainer Moderator Tris Best.

Best said, “Since March 2020 during the Easter Holidays, Bermuda’s first RYA Start Windsurfing Instructor course had been planned but then put on hold due to the coronavirus covid-19 pandemic.

Recently we had 4 candidates, including 3 local Bermudians, take part in the 5-day course run at one of our Royal Yachting Association Accredited (RYA) recognized training centers.

This course was run by an RYA Windsurfing Trainer and moderated at the end, by an independent RYA Windsurfing trainer.

All 4 candidates, Adriana Penruddocke, Nancy Rickmann, Jade Smith, and Moriah Wheddon qualified as RYA Start Windsurfing Instructors. This is a great achievement to help to bring RYA to start Windsurfing to the island and encourages others to try this fun sport.”

Bermuda Sailors Continue Invitational Cup Struggles

IslandStats.com
Sailors competing in the 2021 Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup including the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Sailing Team faced one of the most challenging days on the water in the history of this storied event.

The fleet had periods of a wave, a shift, a patch of no wind, a trench of disturbed air, a picket fence of competitors on starboard tack.

The Bermuda boat skippered by James Macdonald, along with his crew Jon Corless, Tom Miller, Lexa Macdonald, Jeff Roach, Walter Smith, Paul Watson, and Alison Hill, struggled yet again remaining in last place in the 19 boat fleet.

Macdonald and his crew finished the first race in 19th place, they would then finish in 18th in the second race, they then finished 18th in the final race of the day.

Macdonald and his crew have 148 points, while the Southern Yacht Club boat skippered by John Lovell representing the USA continues as the leader with 28 points.

Another Bermudian sailor is also competing in the event, Lance Fraser, tactician for Royal Canadian Yacht Club said, "The boats are amazing, it’s frustratingly close racing. Every inch matters, every tack matters, every shift matters. If you end up on the wrong side of a few things, you get deep and it’s really hard to get back. We’ve had an OK regatta so far, we need to keep pushing, basically no more mistakes at this point."
