2018 marked the first year multihull entries were invited to the Newport Bermuda Race – and the class was entirely made up of Gunboats! ARETHUSA, TRIBE, and ELVIS put their names on this piece of yachting history. And while conditions tested the patience of the keenest light-air sailors, they were rewarded with the pristine tropical oasis that is Bermuda.
