Atlantic Anniversary Regatta To Include Bermuda

July 19, 2015

The Norddeutscher Regatta Verein [Hamburg] and the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda [Porto Cervo, Sardinia] announced an offshore regatta series in 2017/2018 which will include a stop in Bermuda.

The “Atlantic Anniversary Regatta” will depart from the Canary Islands in November 2017 headed for Virgin Gorda [British Virgin Islands], where the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda has its winter base.

Depending on the size of the competing yachts and the wind conditions, the boats are expected to arrive in Virgin Gorda after approximately two weeks. Subsequently they will have the opportunity to take part in the existing regatta circuit around the Caribbean.

With the popular Newport Bermuda Race the participants will arrive at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. In July 2018 the yachts will then leave Bermuda for their return journey to Hamburg. The finish line will await them just off Cuxhaven where the river Elbe flows into the North Sea.

Expressions of interest are very welcome at this early stage via the event website. There is also a possibility to only register for one leg of the route. For the overall winner of the series a unique prize is being created especially for this occasion.
