Marion Bermuda Race Changes Start Date of 2017 Race

In an effort to provide the best possible viewing opportunity for the 2017 America’s Cup finals in Bermuda, the Trustees of Marion Bermuda Race have announced that they will move the Race start date up one week to June 9, 2017. This will enable all Race participants to arrive in Bermuda prior to the start of the America’s Cup finals on June 17, 2017. A survey taken by the Marion Bermuda Race Organizing Committee in the fall showed a very high interest by past race participants to be in Bermuda for the America’s Cup. In keeping with the Race’s mission of supporting youth sailing in both North America and Bermuda, the race will be supporting the America’s Cup Endeavor Program, a community sailing program for Bermuda youth. This program was developed by the America’s Cup Committee to leave a sporting legacy in Bermuda after the America’s Cup.

Marion to Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race

Start: Friday June 9, 2017 [REVISED DATE]

40th Anniversary

Marion-Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race Association, Inc.

Marion, Massachusetts, USA

Marion to Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race will start in Buzzards Bay off Marion, Massachusetts, and finish off St. David’s Head, Bermuda.

Since its inception in 1977, the Marion-Bermuda Race has been a Corinthian event, and yachts are accepted by invitation. The spirit of the race is that all yachts and crew are participating for the joy and pleasure of sailing, competition, and the camaraderie that accompanies such an off-shore event. The race provides an opportunity for cruising yachts and amateur crews to participate in an ocean race and a rendezvous in Bermuda. It encourages the development of blue water sailing skills on seaworthy yachts that can be handled safely offshore with limited crew. Prizes are awarded in various categories with a bonus for celestially navigated yachts.
