Bermuda Race Organizing Committee has named the Brewer Yacht Yard Group as the Official Boat Preparation Resource of the Newport Bermuda Race. BROC Race Organizing Committee Chairman Fred Deichmann said, 'We are very happy to welcome the Brewer Group of 22 yards in New York and New England as a member of the sponsor family for the 49th Newport Bermuda Race. The BROC is especially pleased that Brewer will bring its expertise to sailors in a series of race-preparation seminars.'

The first of Brewer’s Newport Bermuda Race Seminars will be held Saturday, September 7th, at the Brewer Pilots Point Marina at Westbrook, CT. Speakers will include Rives Potts, owner-skipper of the 2010 and 2012 St. David’s Lighthouse Trophy winner Carina, and meteorologist and ocean racer Bill Biewenga. Among the topics are: entering the race, preparing for mandatory boat inspection, optimizing your boat for performance, winning strategies on the race course, and guidance on navigation, weather, and crew management.

The day-long seminar is geared both to sailors who want to improve their performance, and to those considering entering their first Newport Bermuda Race or making their first offshore passage. Presenters and Brewer staff members will be available throughout the day to answer questions. The cost is $100 per boat and entitles all crew members to attend. The proceeds will be donated to the Bonnell Cove Foundation to further safety at sea research and education. For more information on the seminar and to register, please click here.

The 2014 Newport Bermuda Race will start on June 20, 2014, off Castle Hill, Newport R.I. For more information about the race, visit Bermuda Race.
