The Marion Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race preliminary Notice of Race (NoR) for 2013 has been revised and the Sailing Instructions (SI) dated April 26, 2013 have been approved and posted on the website.

The most recent version of the Notice of Race is dated April 24, 2013. In this NoR revision, the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) edition governing the race are updated from RRS 2009-2012 to RRS 2013-2016 and the first warning signal for the June 14th start in Buzzard’s Bay off Marion, MA is changed from 1130 to 1200 EDT.

The Sailing Instructions contain a number of changes from the 2011 version. Skippers and crew should read the 2013 race documents very carefully to make sure they are on the same page as the race committee.

When asked if there are changes in the SI’s from the 2011 race, George Gardner, who is the Executive Committee member in charge of Race Operations, replied, 'In the main the 2013 SIs are very nearly the same as the 2011. However, there are quite a number of small changes because of the new divisions. For example there is a small change in starting times and several references to the RRS have changed. The course stays the same.'

Sailors in the Marion Bermuda race know hospitality awaits them at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club in Bermuda.

Shoreside events are planned throughout ’Marion’ Race week for racers, friends and family. -  ©SpectrumPhoto/Fran Grenon   Click Here to view large photo
