Newport to Bermuda and GMT Rigs - A Winning Combination

In the last three Newport to Bermuda Races, boats with GMT rigs have won their class or division. Two of those were awarded the coveted Saint David's Lighthouse Trophy for first out of 85 and 96 boats respectively. All three boats had been refit with a carbon rig from GMT, and one of the boats featured a GMT carbon bow sprit and custom stern mounted carbon swim ladder.
