I had a look. Mostly older age groups, or people from countries who did not have every man/woman and their dog trying to qualify.

 

Just like the aussie and NZ team will be when its on in Bermuda 2021.
There will be just cashed up or those on holiday going.  meanwhile the yanks will be there in force.

I fell in love with Bermuda when I visited a mate who was working there, in 2009. I’m excited by the opportunity to go back there and race a WC.

The logistics of hosting a WC on an island only 30km long and everybody (except for those “cashed up” sailors) has to fly there will be interesting.

I was thinking the same thing last week with the ITU sprint distance, plenty of finishers around the 1h30+ mark. That is considered toward back of the pack at the Hills races :o 

 

......or just the norm for some of us!

They should just dock a cruise ship there for the week. 

Would be cool.

That’s a great idea.

Oh hang on... September, Atlantic, hurricane season, sailing though something like Florence wouldn’t be the ideal race preparation. <Puking emoticons>...🤮🤮🤮
