    Testing is required for Bermuda and one option is "Proctored Rapid Antigen testing" where you can remotely use video to take a supervised test. Two vendors have tailored their services to the Race: “TestZone Services” and “Fit to Fly BDA”.

    Unlike on-site in-person testing, numerous other commercial services are available if you wish to find another vendor. These two vendors have specifically adapted their services to support the needs of the race, particularly to have sufficient capability to test all competitors that choose this testing option on Wednesday. It is essential that anyone intending to utilize these services register in ASAP!

    Navigators begin watching the Gulf Stream structure and evolution well before they cross the starting line and head for Bermuda.

    With slightly more than one month to go until the start of this year’s Newport Bermuda Race, it’s none too early for anyone involved in planning race strategies to start the study of the Gulf Stream in earnest.

    Report by Frank Bohlen is linked from our News section (link in bio).
