”It is a real pleasure to have a partner like Barton & Gray support the Newport Bermuda Race. Watching the race start aboard one of their vessels will be a wonderful experience—a perfect vantage point to wish the sailors well as they set sail to Bermuda,” says Somers Kempe, BROC Chairman.

“Our Members have been taking in the action and beauty of the Bermuda Race start aboard our fleet for the past 15 years, so we could not be happier to officially support and celebrate this international sailing event,” said co-founder Doug Gray.
