The 2020 Mustang Survival Annapolis To Bermuda [A2B] Race will be held this June, marking the 22nd running of the sailing race, which started in 1979.

According to the Bermuda Ocean Race website, “2020 will mark the 22nd running of the race, started in 1979 and moved to a biennial event in 1980.

“The A2B covers 753 miles, making it one of the longest ocean races on the east coast of the U.S. The challenging course combines inshore and offshore racing down the Chesapeake Bay, across the Gulfstream, and onto Bermuda. It enables sailors to fulfill a lifelong ambition of a blue water passage to an island known for its soft coral beaches, in an organized event promoting friendly competition with other boats.

“A number of class divisions ensure a competitive experience for both seasoned racers and more casual cruisers. A major objective of the Race is to promote the art of navigation for more sailors. A2B provides these challenges within a framework designed for safe offshore sailing.

“The race is technically challenging, physically taxing, and alternatively boisterous and serene.

“Over 600 yachts have participated in A2B over the years. Thousands of crew members have experienced the thrill and beauty of a blue water passage as a result of this intense and challenging event.”
