Registration available now for the 2023 Marion-Bermuda race

MARION – Registration for the 2023 Marion Bermuda Race is now open, with early bird registration available through December.

The biannual race begins June 16, 2023 in Buzzards Bay, off the Beverly Yacht Club in Marion, and ends in St. David’s Head, Bermuda, where the race is hosted by the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club. The 2023 race will be the first since 2019.

The Marion Bermuda Race is organized by the two host clubs, plus the Blue Water Sailing Club.

The latest addition will have an adjusted scoring matrix and additional racing categories. As always, the Marion Bermuda Race is an entirely amateur event, with no professional yacht or crew entries.

The event is aimed at the cruiser-racer, with all boat entries meeting the cruising equipment requirements.

“Our race continues to cater to multihulls, families and our unique identifier of rewarding yachts sailing under celestial navigation,” said Neil Redburn, executive director of the Marion Bermuda Race. “Since its inception in 1977, the Marion to Bermuda Race has been a Corinthian event, and our core values ​​reflect that all yachts and crew participate for the joy and pleasure of sailing, the competition and the camaraderie that accompanies such a offshore event. ”

The race itself is a tactical challenge, combining the often windy conditions of a start from Buzzards Bay with a strategic entry into the Gulf Stream, followed by a final push towards Bermuda.

“Next year, a warm welcome awaits you at the Beverly Yacht Club, and there’s the legendary parties and hospitality at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club in Bermuda,” says Redburn. “We’ll see you at the start line on June 16, 2023.”
