Every other year the boats line up to race from Newport to Bermuda. The year my husband and I got married (2012), we planned our honeymoon to Bermuda. However, at that time we had no idea of the race that would be going on. Well, when I looked up the area to see what type of local events were planned, I learned about the Newport to Bermuda race.
When we visited Hamilton (the capital) we could see boats sailing in and lining up. However, the best part was going to the after party (which was held at a yacht club). It was a big affair to commemorate the end of the race. Boats were lined up a long the docks and the city lights could be seen over the waters. Everyone was celebrating. It was definitely a unique and memorable experience.
