Bermuda Race (1978) 2018.

-Ubiquitous title.
But tomorrow is the start of the Newport -Bermuda race.
Only to remember a unique moment in the Bermuda Race History, and a long story at that.
Forty years ago, the first I.O.R,  U.L.D.B on the East coast wrote the new era of lighter boats, more sail area, less displacement and at the time lighter on the budget. Rated at 69.9, just under the maximum. First to finish.

-Rambler 88 at the start.
