Father and Son win division in Newport to Bermuda ocean race

In mid-June of 2012 Steve Frank ’65 and son Simon ’91 competed in the biennial Newport to Bermuda Race aboard the family’s 69′ sloop GRACIE. This year’s weather conditions presented the fleet with the fastest racing conditions in the history of the 106 year old ocean racing classic. The 18 person crew completed the race in 63 hours and 59 minutes, which was fast enough to win their division. Steve has competed in over twenty Bermuda races and this is their fifth race together as father and son. Pictured are Simon and future sailor and hopeful Deerfield alum Annabel along with the Governor of Bermuda and small piece of silverware!

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events.
