The 635-nautical mile ocean race got underway on Friday, June 17 with a fleet of 187 vessels. This year saw the first ever Saturday finisher, with Argo setting a new record time of only 33 hours.

According to the organisers, the biennial Newport Bermuda Race — which was founded in 1906 — is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, one of very few international distance races, and one of just two of the world’s regularly scheduled races held almost entirely out of sight of land.
