US Sailing Releases Report on Bermuda Race Sailor Overboard Incident

Bristol, Rhode Island (October 27, 2022)— Following the tragic incident that occurred during the running of the 52nd Newport Bermuda Race, US Sailing, at the request of The Bermuda Race Foundation, Inc. as the organizing authority for the race, in conjunction with the Cruising Club of America and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, convened a panel of experts to study the incident.

After an extensive investigation, US Sailing has released a report on the incident. The report details a factual summary of the incident, key conclusions and a set of recommendations based on the learnings from the incident to help make the sport of offshore racing safer.

The full report can be found on the US Sailing website here.

US Sailing would like to thank the family of Mr. Golder, the crew of Morgan of Marietta, the Cruising Club of America, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, The Bermuda Race Foundation, Inc.  and the technical experts for their assistance in the investigation.

US Sailing’s condolences remain with the family and friends of long-time US Sailing member Colin Golder.

US Sailing routinely conducts independent reviews of sailing accidents.  Most of these come at the request of the US Coast Guard.  These reviews conducted by panelists assembled from US Sailing’s Safety at Sea Committee have improved safety guidelines for racing, communication between sailors and race organizers, and training for race officials running offshore races.
