So You Want To Race To Bermuda - -That is the title of the Marion Bermuda Race Presentation series happening this fall in locations around New England. Many sailors, racers and cruisers alike, want to make the offshore passage to Bermuda and the Marion Bermuda Race is a great way to go.
There is an additional special reason in 2017 to make the passage…the Race will finish in Bermuda just prior to the finals of the 35th America’s Cup. A lot of planning and coordination has gone into the 2017 race to insure all participants that want to stay for the America’s Cup will have that opportunity. Limited special dockage arrangements are in place, spectator boats to the racing and special tours of the race compound are all on the agenda. So don’t miss the opportunity to have a front row seat to the America’s Cup while enjoying a wonderful offshore sailing event…the Marion Bermuda Race.
So if you have never done the race or would just like a refresher, take advantage of one of this year’s Marion Bermuda Race presentations. You will hear information specific to the race and many of the activities surrounding the race. The presentation will cover subjects such as, boat qualifications, boat and crew preparations, communications and safety equipment, watch schedules, customs requirements, cost and logistics and the preparation process. It will also touch on strategies for Buzzards Bay, the Gulf Stream and the approach to Bermuda.
The presentations are open to the public and their is only one presentation left - so don't miss it!
