The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club announces that the third edition of the Antigua Bermuda Race will start on the May 8 2019 and will be part of the 2019 Atlantic Ocean Racing Series (AORS).
The 2019 Atlantic Ocean Racing Series will consist of five races: RORC Caribbean 600, Antigua Bermuda Race, Transatlantic Race 2019, Rolex Fastnet Race, and Rolex Middle Sea Race. Three races, including the Transatlantic Race (weighted 1.5) will be required to qualify.
“The TR 2019 committee unanimously thinks adding the Antigua Bermuda Race to the AORS is a splendid idea and should benefit all the races included. We are very excited about the enhancement to the series,” commented Co-chair Patti Young.
The 935-mile Antigua Bermuda Race is organized in association with Antigua Sailing Week and is supported by the Bermuda Tourism Authority. https://antiguabermuda.com
