2008 Newport-to-Bermuda Race

Results from the 2008 Newport-to-Bermuda Race show the performance value of upgrading older boats with GMT carbon spars. With apologies for any GMT customers omitted here, we did notice our spars collected a first, two seconds and a third.
John Watts’ Bandera (shown here) and her 15 year old GMT rig were first in Class 14. Chris Culver’s Cetacea came third in the same class.
Under ORR, Bob Forman’s Jacqueline IV and Andre Laus’ First Light both took seconds in class.
