[Written by Talbot Wilson]

Sail the 2017 Marion Bermuda Race starting June 9th from Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, enjoy all the post-race fun and activities at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club and stay on for your front row seat at the 2017 America’s Cup on Bermuda’s Great Sound.

In an effort to provide the best possible viewing opportunity for the 2017 America’s Cup finals in Bermuda, the Trustees of Marion Bermuda Race have moved their race start to June 9, 2017.

This enables all race participants to arrive in Bermuda prior to the start of the America’s Cup finals on June 17, 2017.
