This bulletin was sent to all Bermuda Race competitors who sailed in 2018 and/or registered in 2020, as well as 2022 registrants. Our goal is to spread the word that now is the best time to enter the race if you are planning to do so.
The final window for discounted entry will close at midnight on Friday, February 18. To get started, visit the entry portal.
The race applies a graduated entry fee to encourage early commitment and preparation. The total fee for an entrant is determined by when an entrant pays their entry deposit (which is 50% of the total entry fee).
Please pass this message on to other captains you may know are interested in racing. Captains should plan to settle their deposit before midnight (EST) on Friday or pay the full, undiscounted entry fee before entries close on April 3.
As of Wednesday, February 16, we have 202 entries. That leaves 18 spots open until we hit our 220-boat limit, after which further entries will be placed on a waiting list.

2022 Bermuda Race Organizing Committee
