Spirit of Bermuda crossed the finish line in Bermuda at 2:43 a.m. on June 19, five days after leaving Massachusetts. "We started the race as 32 separate individuals from all over the globe," the crew wrote in their public log. "Many of us were complete strangers. We all stepped way outside our comfort zone. Just like the objective of the Bermuda Sloop Foundation, we united over a common purpose. We worked together to accomplish our goal. And in the process, we became a team. More than that, we became a family."
