Growing New England sailboat dealership becomes newest official sponsor of 52nd “Thrash to the Onion Patch”
Newport, RI (July 8, 2021) – The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee (BROC) has named Bluenose Yacht Sales an Official 2022 Race Sponsor as well as Exclusive Sponsor of the YB Tracker, which allows race fans to follow the fleet.
“We are thrilled to be a sponsor of the 2022 Newport Bermuda Race,” says Bluenose Yacht Sales owner and managing partner, Glenn Walters. “Many of our brands have won or finished on the podium in past races, not least of which was a Jeanneau 53 taking first in class in the last race.”
Walters adds that he anticipates several Jeanneau models will register for 2022, including the new SunFast 3300. “We look forward to seeing these boats in both doublehanded and team divisions,” Walters says.
“The YB Tracker is an increasingly important way of keeping tabs on the race as it develops,” says Somers Kempe, BROC chairman. “Having the sponsorship of Bluenose Yacht Sales helps raise the visibility of this race feature, making it more readily available to friends, family, and fans through Bermudarace.com. In recent years, it has been viewed close to 100,000 times during the 635-mile race.”
