The Bermuda Race

CCA and the Race

CCA Members are proud to volunteer alongside Royal Bermuda Yacht Club members on the Bermuda Race Organizing Committee to run the biennial Newport Bermuda Race. This race is one of the most prestigious offshore races in the world due to its challenging passage through the Gulf Stream with complicated weather and currents. Established in 1906, this 636-mile journey is seen as a rite of passage for generations of sailors on the East Coast and attracts sailors from around the world. 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.
