Event description

Description

Brewer Yacht Yards, with 30 locations between Maryland and Massachusetts, have prepared hundreds of boats for distance races and offshore voyages. From Transatlantic and Fastnet races to arctic explorations and circumnavigations, Brewer staff have advised owners on gear selection, vessel construction, and speed optimization for over 40 years. The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee has again named Safe Harbor Marinas/Brewer Yacht Yard Group as the Official Boat Preparation Resource for the Newport Bermuda Race.

We invite you to join us at our seminar on offshore safety preparedness in anticipation of the 2018 Newport Bermuda Race. Among the topics covered by Brewer staff members, Bermuda Race veterans, and other experts will be:

  • The intent behind each requirement
  • Straightforward methods of compliance that won’t break the bank
  • Preparing for mandatory boat inspection
  • Specific considerations for multihulls
  • Hull construction and stability
  • Rigging and sail selection (including storm sails)
  • Safety and emergency equipment
  • Training and Safety at Sea credentials
  • Navigation and communications devices

Of value to both racers and cruisers alike, this series will give anyone preparing their boat for extended voyaging the peace of mind that comes with hearing from the most experienced advisors in the industry. The day’s events will include the opportunity to board race-ready boats for a close-up view of safety and compliance measures. Lunch will be provided as well as a social hour following the seminar when speakers and staff will be available for questions.

Your boat's $149 admission fee gains you and your entire crew entry to the day-long lecture series. The seminar is geared both to sailors who want to increase their understanding and to those considering entering their first Newport Bermuda Race or making their first offshore passage. Presenters and Brewer staff members will be available throughout the day to answer questions.
