New Jobson Bermuda Video Premieres

Gary Jobson's film, "Racing to Bermuda: A Century on the Ocean" is now available on DVD. This magnificent movie captures the essence of the Newport Bermuda Race through footage taken aboard yachts competing in the Centennial Race in 2006 as well as historic views of past races, yachts and sailors.

The 1-hour movie is the perfect way to relive the race of a century for crew, family and friends. Follow eight of the boats from 38 to 98 feet as they chase the magnificent lighthouse trophies and make tactical decisions about how to play the weather and Gulf Stream in a light air race that tested skill and patience in a record size fleet of 265 boats.

From the start in Newport, Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay, to the fast-flowing meanders of the Gulf Stream, to the finish off Bermuda's St. David's Lighthouse, and the magnificent Prizegiving ceremony at Government House, the DVD shows the strategy, tactics, yachts and victory in modern offshore racing. The DVD is available here for a small shipping and handling charge of $10.00.
