Every other year in June, over 180 boats set off on a 635-mile ocean race from Newport, R.I. to Bermuda. Hundreds of spectator boats jockey for the best view of the fleet, and crowds fill the Castle Hill lawns to gaze at the start. It is truly a spectacle. The first gun of this year's edition of the Newport Bermuda Race will be on June 15 at 1250. Whether you're on the water on Narragansett Bay, or on land at Castle Hill or Fort Adams, you won't miss it. And if you can't make the start, be sure to check out the competitors at the Newport Shipyard and around Newport Harbor the week before.
