Marion, Massachusetts— May 19, 2015: In a mere month, fifty sailboats will hit the line in Buzzard’s Bay for the Marion version of the “Thrash to the Onion Patch” in the 20th Marion to Bermuda Race. The 118-foot “Spirit of Bermuda”, the island’s sail training vessel and Bermuda’s floating ambassador is the largest and only entry in the Classic Division. “Mischievous”, a Meriten 65 is the sole entry in the Big Yacht Division. All of the other entries are in the Founders Division.
Returning in 2015 to defend her 2013 title is “Roust”, last year’s overall winner of the Founders Trophy. She is a little 34-foot Sea Sprite, the smallest entry in the 2013 race. “Roust” is sailed double-handed and is also celestially navigated.
