Marion to Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race
Start: Friday June 19, 2015
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.
Thank you to the volunteers and participants for a great 2013 event.
See you in 2015!
