I too have thoughts of sailing to bermuda then maybe south. I have asked 
if the A-30 could enter either the Marion to Bermuda or the Newport to 
Bermuda and have been told no .  Marion to Bermuda has a 32' loa lower 
limit and they say they would not entertain anything shorter. Newport to 
Bermuda says 27.5' "L" which is IMS for roughly w.l. length older boats 
with overhangs get penalized. they told me that an A 35 would barely 
make it..... I would love to sail there in the company of others as I 
don't have any offshore experience. So I have thought of "Brown Bagging" 
one of those races Maybe year after next.
  A mid 60's Pearson 40 won Newport last time on corrected time so the 
older boats are still competitive with a little luck.  Does anyone know 
of a Bluewater Cruise that I could get involved in without buying a 
bigger boat? I have friends that are willing to help crew.    regards Chris
