by Fred Deichmann on 4 Mar 2014
The Newport Bermuda Race's deadline for Applications for Entry is rapidly approaching and will close at 1700 hours, April 1, 2014. This leaves only four weeks remaining in which to apply without incurring a time penalty.

Applications for Entry may be filed in the race entry portal on the race web site. Also online are a complete guide to entry, race documents and requirements and an extensive FAQ, all found under the 'Entry' section of BermudaRace.com.
Applications for Entry are coming in at a strong pace, with applications for 133 yachts having been received as of this date. This pace suggests that a highly competitive 'Thrash to the Onion Patch' is in store for the 2014 fleet. We urge all qualified sailors to join us for the start at Castle Hill in Narragansett Bay's East Passage on Friday, June 20, 2014.
The race's well-regarded safety-at-sea seminar on March 15 is experiencing heavier than usual signup. Register at BermudaRace.com at the Entry section.
