The partnership will also allow BGA, in association with Caroline Bay Marina, to provide a number of additional services to boat owners.

According to Caroline Bay, these services include client charter registration assistance, bunkering, Customs & Immigration clearance facilities, berth reservations, concierge services and more.

John Tomlinson said, “As President and CEO of BGA Wholesale Distributor and Pitt & Co. Ltd., I can happily report that we are delighted to have been invited by the team at Caroline Bay Marina to be a major part of their yacht provisioning service.

“Our group of businesses are uniquely well placed to deliver excellence to our high-profile guests; from the best quality Linz meats and freshest produce, to the finest wines, champagnes and cigars.”

Ralph Richardson, CEO of Caroline Bay Marina, said: “One of the challenges Bermuda will face during the America’s Cup event will be the difficulty in servicing the largest visiting flotilla that has ever graced our harbours and bays. There has been no event that will tax our ability to provision vessels such as this one, especially over such an extended period.

“This new partnership with BGA will not only augment the services provided by Caroline Bay Marina, it will also provide a convenient location to supply provisions for the scores of vessels at anchor in the Little Sound, the Great Sound and Granaway Deep.

“We would like to thank John Tomlinson and his team for joining us as we collectively strive to provide world class service for this world class event.”
