The 635-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world. Founded in 1906, the 52nd running of the Bermuda Race is scheduled for June, 2022 – however for 2020, the Newport Bermuda Race will be a virtual race only.
Entries are invited for one of the Four Divisions:
Double-Handed Division: Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300
St. David's Lighthouse Division: Dehler 46
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Division: X-Yachts Xp-55
Finisterre Division: Italia Yachts IY 14.98
Details for each yacht are available in the ‘Particulars’ links below and by following the links in the Newport Bermuda Race Blog, where you should register your entry also – there are some fine prizes to be won.
