TOMORROW May 11, 1900, EDT - “What Division is Right for Me in the Bermuda Race?” This is our Race-Prep Webinar #4. Sign Up in link in bio. (Webinar Series)⠀

In this one-hour webinar, past race chair A.J. Evans and technical committee chair Nick Nicholson will help you decide which “race within the Bermuda Race” is right for you, your boat, and your crew.⠀

Your type of boat and your crew make-up will sometimes make it obvious whether you will sail in the St. David’s, Gibbs Hill, Finisterre or other divisions, but often as Captain you can make equipment and crew choices to sail in a more or less intensely competitive mode, thereby moving into one division or another.⠀

Moderated by Race Vice-Chairman Mark Lenci, our experts will review several examples and respond to your questions.⠀

Registration is free, but you must REGISTER to receive the Zoom link for the event. As you register, you are also invited to submit questions in advance. (NOTE: If you've previously registered, there's no need to do so again.)⠀

Here is a little Bermuda Race trivia for you. A total of nearly 5,000 boats and 50,000 sailors have raced a total of more than 3,000,000 miles of ocean water, between 1906 and 2014. Does anyone know how many boats, sailors, and miles have raced since 2014? ⠀
