Bermuda is a lovely, civilized and very expensive subtropical outpost in the ocean.
Our first stop was St George, an enclosed bay, with about 20 other cruising boats at anchor from all over. There was a Dutch boat we last saw in the Marquesas in 2010.

Paul Bieker of Seattle kindly gave all of us a tour of the Oracle Americas Cup campaign base.
Artemis and Oracle were out practicing daily, so we got a good look at them streaking around.
A few days later, we took the boat out and watched the fitted dinghy races. Bill loaded a bunch of pictures on Flickr. Click on the image below to go to the Flickr page.
After a very pleasant time in Bermuda, our wallets were running dry and the weather window opened up, so it was time to put on our scop patches and go to sea again.
Next stop: Flores Island, Azores approx 1800 n mi NE.
