Registration for the 2025 Marion Bermuda Race is now open, and early bird registration is available until December 2024! Join us for a beautiful and exciting race to Bermuda, starting from Marion, Massachusetts, on June 20th, 2025.

The 2025 Notice of Race has been posted. As always, the Marion Bermuda Race is a fully Corinthian event with no professional yacht or crew entries. The event is for the racer-cruiser, with all boat entries meeting the requirements for cruising equipment.

For first-time racers, our co-pilot program will pair you with an experienced skipper to help guide you through preparation and race logistics. For returning racers, we're thrilled to have you back and to soon share all the new and exciting updates to the 2025 race!

Visit our website for all of the details, and to register for this event — we can't wait to see you on the start line in less than a year!

A New Division for 2025

The Marion Bermuda Race has listened. Over the years, race organizers have received many requests from the PHRF fleets to add a division to accommodate the boats capable of racing offshore and looking for that next challenge. So, for the 2025 race, we have added a completely separate division just for PHRF.

As with all Marion Bermuda entries, boats will be required to be at least 32 feet LOA and sailing with a PHRF-New England Time on Time certificate. Within the division, there will be two classes: an electronically navigated class and a celestially navigated class.
