Well, the ski bum is going to sea!

That's right: I’m sailing to Bermuda this weekend in the Marion-Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race. Since 1977, the Marion-Bermuda Race has been a premier 645-mile ocean race and sailing event that appeals to a broad range of cruising and racing enthusiasts.


The Marion Bermuda Race is organized and run entirely by hundreds of volunteering members of The Beverly Yacht Club (BYC), The Blue Water Sailing Club (BWSC) and The Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club (RHADC) for the Marion Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race Association.

I’ll be sailing on a J 122 sailboat named August West, and you can track us and all the boats on the Marion to Bermuda website. Here is a great video on what a J 122 looks like:

Thanks to my sailing friends at Sperry Top-Sider, Atlantis and Gowire Insurance, as well as the Lake Winnispaukee Sailing Association.

I'll be sending updates from the trip via satellite phone. Tune into RadioBDC and on Edging the Xtreme for video, images and updates with Adam 12 and I all weekend.

Here are some more pictures, to keep you on your toes:
