First sailed in 1906, the Bermuda Race has become the offshore race most sailors worldwide aspire to race, perhaps because it is truly an open ocean race to warm and friendly Bermuda.  

The Bermuda Race Foundation, Inc. is a not for profit 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to promote national and international amateur sports competition, to serve as the Organizing Authority for the biennial Newport Bermuda Race, and to provide vessel safety inspections, educational services and training for offshore sailing and safety at sea. In addition to organizing and conducting Safety at Sea training under the auspices of US Sailing and World Sailing, through the volunteers on its Bermuda Race Organizing Committee the Foundation screens potential vessel and crew participants, conducts pre-race vessel safety inspections, organizes and runs all aspects of the race, and is the Organizing Authority for the Newport Bermuda Race. Donations to the Bermuda Race Foundation are tax-deductible.
