Bermuda Ocean Race date chosen for 2012
Bermuda Ocean Race organizers have slated their 18th biennial Annapolis-to-Bermuda race for Friday, June 8, 2012. The BOR is a race that begins in Annapolis and ends 750 miles later in Bermuda. Annapolis' Eastport Yacht Club and Bermuda's St. George's Dinghy Club host it. "The race is designed to challenge sailors with a unique combination of conditions – unpredictable winds down the Chesapeake Bay, shipping traffic along busy coastal waters, a Gulf Stream crossing, swirling eddies, invisible competition and treacherous reefs encircling Bermuda," said Mary Ann DeGraw, BOR chairwoman. The race is open to any single- or multi-hulled sailing yacht, and Annapolis organizers are anticipating up to 50 entries. The fleet in 2010 ranged in size from 21 to 81 feet, reflecting both cruising and racing designs, and crews of two to 28 ranging from professional sailors to Sea Scouts.
