Special Entry Prizes

There are Five “Special Entry” competitions for boats racing to Bermuda in 2016. These require completion of a separate Special Entry form in addition to general Race entry. They are: William L. Glenn Family Participation Prize, Irving Pratt 3-boat Team Prize, Regional Prizes (5) for competing boats from distant home venues, City of Newport (Best “Foreign” entry) and the new Stephens Brothers Youth Division Trophy (emphasizing young crew performance).   (See the complete Bermuda Race Trophy List.pdf)

Scoring

For these and certain other prizes marked “X-DV” (See Prize List) will be based on cross-divisional comparison of decimal percentage standing of corrected time ranking within a vessel’s own division. Thus, prize winners will be determined by cross-divisional comparison of a vessel’s relative performance within its respective division. The vessel with a higher relative final standing within its own division will then place higher cross-divisionally. This allows for greater competition for the same prize among vessels in different divisions. It also allows boats from different divisions to combine in 3-boat teams for the Pratt competition.
