Published on March 23rd, 2020
(March 23, 2020) – The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee (BROC) revealed their decision to cancel the 2020 Newport Bermuda Race due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 52nd edition of the 635nm course was scheduled to start June 19.
“Our position has always been that we can only conduct the race if conditions for competitors and local populations made it safe to do so,” said BROC in a statement. “After continuing to seek guidance from numerous government and medical advisors, it has become evident there is not a clear timeline allowing our sailors and supporters to prepare for and participate in this offshore race safely.”
