Thought you'd like this quote I found on a race commentary page at http://bermudarace.com/OntheRacecourse/RaceCommentary/tabid/293/EntryID/207/Default.aspx
"1024 Saturday. Just sailed (rather, drifted) into Navy war games. Harrier jets
circling directly overhead and landing on a carrier MUCH TOO NEARBY.
This show went on for about half an hour. Got some on video. Have just heard an announcement
that live fire exercises are about to start to the north of us. Geeze.
Easterly just filled in, very light and fluky. 100m true, 6 kts. Boat speed 4.5 - 5, code zero, 70 apparent, .5 kt fair current. "
I spent 3 years at sea aboard a carrier and am wishing I could have seen this! Also, I made a comment on the dolphin thread about pictures. I found some amazing images of the race start if you haven't found them yet. I saw at least one USNA boat... there are probably others. See link to pictures in the dolphin thread.
