Safe Harbor Marinas returns as 2020 Bermuda Race Official Yacht Preparation Resource sponsor

The Bermuda Race Organising Committee (BROC) has named Safe Harbor Marinas as Official Yacht Preparation Resource for the next edition of the Newport Bermuda Race.

First run in 1906, the Newport Bermuda Race is said to be the oldest regularly scheduled offshore sailboat race. Safe Harbor’s network includes several full-service locations on Narragansett Bay, further amplifying the same sponsorship role they filled in 2018.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Safe Harbor Marinas back as a member of the sponsor family for the 52nd Bermuda Race,” says BROC Chairman, Jay Gowell. “Its growth makes their sponsorship an even stronger asset, bringing vital expertise to more sailors seeking assistance in preparing their yachts for the 635-mile Thrash to the Onion Patch in June.”

The Safe Harbor Marinas network now includes well-known locations ranging from Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard and Safe Harbor New England Boatworks to Safe Harbor Pilot’s Point, as well as several more locations around Narragansett Bay. In the last decade, the team at Safe Harbor Marinas has prepared more than a hundred yachts for the Bermuda Race, advising owners on gear selection, vessel construction, inspection requirements, and speed optimisation.

“We’re proud to again support the historic Newport Bermuda Race,” says Safe Harbor’s James Phyfe, who also serves as the race’s Chief Inspector. “Safe Harbor Marinas brings unmatched knowledge and expertise to helping sailors prepare for the challenges of this offshore contest.”
