2022 Bermuda Short-Handed Return

2022 Bermuda Short-Handed Return

June 26 to July 3, 2022

The New York Yacht Club and the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, working with the support of the Cruising Club of America, are hosting an inaugural Bermuda Short-Handed Return Race—a post Newport Bermuda Race return to Newport for Single- and Double-Handed Boats.

The race hopes to engender a safe return environment for competitors through tracking and the knowledge that other competitors are on the course to provide assistance, if needed. It is also hoped the race will promote greater interest in short-handed sailing, particularly in light of the Olympic interest under discussion.
