The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, working in association with Antigua Sailing Week, is organizing a race to bring yachts to Bermuda, timed to enjoy the America’s Cup racing and learn what a great place Bermuda can be as a cruising ground and staging area before the summer season in New England or Europe.

The replica schooner America and the Sail Training sloop Spirit of Bermuda will flagship the race, which is open to contemporary and classic yachts, multihulls and superyachts. Yachts will be handicapped using IRC, CSA or CSA Classic ratings and Superyacht ratings. A secondary motor cruising handicap will also be provided. 

Goslings Bermuda Rum will be sponsoring a grand Prize Giving in Bermuda.

Registration Opens Nov 1, 2016
