A2B Starts Today -- Come Out and Watch

The Annapolis Bermuda Race starts today!  The weather looks light and favorable for the start with winds predicted out of the northwest at 5-10 knots.  With spinnakers likely flying, the start should be colorful against the beautiful backdrop of the Chesapeake.  Come out and watch from land near Eastport Yacht Club or on the water.

Annapolis Bermuda Race Start Lineup

  • Parade of A2B boats flying racing pennants - noon
  • Warning Signal for the 1st start – 1:30 p.m.
  • Race starts in the vicinity of R-2 at the entrance to the Severn River

Spectator On-Water Courtesy

  • Observe speed limits and "no wake" restrictions.
  • Maintain a safe distance from the racers, stay aft of their beam and avoid passing across their bows.
  • Sailboats keep your sails down in the area adjacent to the start area. By doing so you'll help shore side and other on-water spectators see the race; you won't interfere with the racers' wind patterns; and you won't be confused with a race boat.
