Events to mark Comet race anniversary
A series of events will mark the 75th anniversary of a traditional sailboat race.
The Edward Cross Long Distance Comet Race will reach the milestone with its annual race on National Heroes Day on Monday.

People will share their family stories of Bermudians on the sea.
It will be followed by a members’ social event at the West End Sailboat Club on Friday evening.
The Mid Atlantic Boat and Sports Club will host a children’s day on Saturday, from 12pm to 5pm, featuring bouncy castles, games and food.
