Dateline 20/06/06 Bermuda: Finish of the Newport Bermuda Race.
Hap Fauth (centre with white hair) and his 'Bella Mente' crew from Newport RI, celebrate a spectacular victory as first finisher among the 264 strong Newport Bermuda Race fleet.

Their 66ft Judel Vrolijk designed racer crossed the St David's Lighthouse finish at 15:12:18 EDT, having beaten much larger yachts down the 635 mile course.
