 Race-Prep Webinar #4 – May 11, 1900 EDT

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.)
