Marion Bermuda Race date set for 2003

The Marion Bermuda Cruising Yacht Race, which sails every other June from Marion, Mass., will begin June 20, 2003. The race will not feature any changes to the previous race rules. The race will retain two navigation classes, electronic and celestial, only.

Ocean Navigator will once again sponsor the Navigator’s Trophy, to be presented by veteran Marion Bermuda racer Andrew Howe of Ocean Navigator’s School of Seamanship.

The race will continue to use the Americap system of handicapping and is open to cruising yachts (no all-out racers and no professionals!) between 32 and 62 feet LOD.
