Newport Bermuda Race adds superyacht division

ADVERTISEMENT

The Newport Bermuda Race has created a Super Yacht Division for the 2016 race in June to accommodate yachts over 90 feet.

The division will sail under some rules that are different from the rest of the fleet, and on a different rhumb line. For example, the division will have:

  • a staggered start at a different time, for safety;
  • a course that leaves Block Island and Bermuda to port (rather than starboard); and
  • some variations in the Safety Requirements where they conflict with the yacht’s classification society’s or flag state’s regulations.

Yachts in the division will be permitted to use power-driven winches and furlers, as well as mechanical and electro-mechanical steering devices.

For more information, contact John Winder at open@bermudarace.com.
