No. 4 Competitor Bulletin—NOR, Entry Process, Website Announced

May 20, 2019

A letter from Chairman Jay Gowell to prospective 2020 competitors:

As part of our continuing effort to simplify the process of preparing for the 2020 Newport Bermuda Race, I’m delighted to write to you with significant news:  

  1. The Notice of Race has been posted much earlier than in past race cycles.
  2. We are opening the entry system a year ahead of the race start, beginning June 21, 2019 at 1300. Whether you’re new to the race or an old hand, this should give you the flexibility to work through the entry requirements throughout the year when convenient.
  3. The race website has been revamped and made more mobile friendly, and it features a new video about the entry process (below).

Here’s a link to the media update we have just circulated, announcing the changes: “Earlier, Easier Entry Process for 2020 Race“.

I’d also like to remind you that through a special arrangement with Seahorse, the international publication for offshore racing, we are able to offer you a favorable subscription rate (renewals included), a portion of which supports the our race.

Fair winds this season!
Jay Gowell

Andrew Kallfelz introduces the entry process for 2020, beginning June 21, 2019 at 1300.
