Bermuda Race tent party: sea stories from young and old, Race-Prep Webinar Series continues Tuesday, Mar. 16th, 7pm EDT

If the Newport Bermuda Race is on your bucket list, register here to join us for one or all of the next five events in our free webinar series, presented by Bermuda Tourism Authority and Goslings Rum.

[If already registered, there's no need to do so again - we'll send all who registered a link next Tuesday.]

The event next week will focus on the human side of doing the race. You know it's an adventure out there crossing 635 bluewater miles, but what's it really like? We'll have a variety of stories told by veterans and newer sailors.

Featured story-tellers:

Liz Shaw, Rives Potts, Scott Murray, Lindsay Gimple, Ron Weiss, Somers Kempe (race chair and moderator).

We're calling all race veterans, too! Think you've got the best story? Let us know in the Chat and we may have time to put you on the hot seat to spin your own yarn.

Register on the Race-Prep Webinar page for Tuesday's webinar and you'll receive a confirmation email with a link. Afterwards, we'll send you a link to the recording in case you missed the event.

Missed the first webinar?

If you missed Feb. 9, you can still watch it here. And webinars through the spring will look at different aspects of the race. All will help you think about how this race could become your reality in 2022!
