Postcards From Bermuda

3rd November, 2015

With winter looming and work keeping Erin and myself too often in separate cities, we felt like fall was the perfect time to book a quick sisters’ escape. Our lives are a little busy for significant travel right now, so Bermuda proved to be the perfect solution. Only a 2 hour flight from New York, it’s easier to access than the Hamptons and infinitely more tropical.

We planned our visit to coincide with the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup qualifying races, a sailing competition that combines physical prowess, technological advancements, and the unpredictability of nature to outrageously exciting effect. The boats’ craftsmanship is inspired by airplane wings, and they literally fly out of the water on tight course turns. The sportsmanship is breathtaking, the sailors are achingly handsome, and the spectator boats are filled with champagne. What’s not to love?!

Currently Oracle Team USA holds the cup, but the races we witnessed were qualifiers, to determine which country will challenge them for its possession in the 2017 finals. Count on Erin and I to be back on Bermuda’s pink sand beaches to watch that show go down!
