The Notice of Race for the 2010 Newport Bermuda Race, which starts on June 18, has been posted at BermudaRace.com alongside a report of a recent survey of race veterans revealing high satisfaction with the historic “thrash to the Onion Patch.”
The entry period runs from January 18 to March 30. Electronic submission is the much preferred method. As in recent years there will be five divisions: St. David’s Lighthouse (amateur), Gibbs Hill Lighthouse (professional), Cruiser, Double-Handed, and Open (cant keel).
One of few international ocean races, this will be the Bermuda Race's 47th running since it was founded in 1906. The last race in 2008 had 198 entries.
