The 2013 Bermuda 1-2
June 10, 2013

Hello friends-

I am sorry to report that I have elected to withdraw GryphonSolo2 from the Bermuda 1-2.  We had very light winds all day today (Sunday) and  were becalmed in the Gulf Stream this evening.  The weather forecast did not show much wind in the next few days, and  I have some personal and business commitments later this week, so  I reluctantly decided to pull the plug and bring the boat back to Newport (220 miles) rather than carry on to Bermuda (420 miles).  I am motoring now so would expect to be back in Newport in about 36 hours.    

Sorry to end things so abruptly but there are more events on the calendar this summer including Marblehead to Halifax in July so stay tuned.   

Cheers
Joe
