The Bermuda Race

CCA and the Race

CCA is proud to serve, with the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, as the Organizing Authority of the Bermuda Race, running biennially from Newport to Bermuda. This passage, through often very challenging weather and often maddening ocean currents, is seen as a rite of passage for generations of sailors on the East Coast. With a long and proud history, the race boasts an enthusiastic following and large roster of volunteer supporters.

Starts in June of Even Years. Visit the race website for more information.
