2024 Bermuda Short-Handed Return

2024 Bermuda Short-Handed Return

June 30, 2024: Race Start

The New York Yacht Club, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and the Cruising Club of America, are looking forward to the second edition of the 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.

We have made arrangements again this year with George Washington Maritime Medical Access (GWMMA) to provide standby telephonic medical support during the race. GWMMA may not disclose your protected health information (“PHI”) without your written authorization, except as provided in their Notice of Privacy Practices. If you want GWMMA providers to share your PHI with the Bermuda Short Handed Return coordinators, you must individually authorize that by each participant completing and signing and returning the MFA Authorization form. This form is optional; GWMMA will not condition providing treatment to you on whether you complete this form.

All boats arriving into Newport, RI from Bermuda must be cleared by US Customs and Border Protection before any person on board can debark. Click here for more information on what steps you will need to take to complete this process.
