Free Info Sessions for Marion Bermuda

Many sailors want to make the passage to Bermuda and the Marion Bermuda Race is a great way to go, but there are so many questions that must be answered.

Free Information sessions to help you prepare will be presented by Race Organizers at New England based Landfall Navigation and West Marine stores throughout January 2013.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see what it takes for you, your crew and your boat to race to the beautiful island of Bermuda safely (and maybe win a little silver along the way).

During these sessions, you will learn about:

  • Boat qualification
  • Boat Preparation
  • Crew Preparation
  • Communication equipment needed
  • Safety equipment needed
  • Watch schedules
  • Customs requirements
  • Costs and Logistics
  • When to begin preparations
