Any captain who's planning to race but is not ready to file the application is asked to email Participation(@)BermudaRace.com as soon as possible so race planning can proceed.

A message from the flag officers of the Cruising Club of America and Royal Bermuda Yacht Club:
'It's time to line up your crew, to book your rooms and slip in Bermuda, and to enjoy the anticipation of another great Newport Bermuda Race. The reward for you and your crew is incomparable blue water sailing and the unparalleled sense of accomplishment that awaits a successful finish.

'This could be your year to win one of the many dazzling perpetual and keeper trophies - perhaps even a Lighthouse trophy.'

Are you a first-timer? If so, you're not alone. One out of four Bermuda Race captains is new to the race. A race Ambassador can advise you. Contact Participation(@)BermudaRace.com.
