Newport, Rhode Island (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Though its beginning is still more than half a year away, the 2012 Newport Bermuda Race is already drawing the attention of competitive sailing enthusiasts, including sailor Bruce Tulio. The race, which is held only once every two years, has announced the schedule for all of its 2012 events, which means that Bruce Tulio and his fellow sailors are already penciling it into their 2012 calendars, either to participate or simply to act as spectators.
In fact, some of the most important dates in the competition are on the near horizon. The race entry process is scheduled to begin, at the official website, on January 16, 2012. The registration process will extend through April 15, leaving prospective sailors a window of just three months to get their applications in order.
In the meantime, the Newport Bermuda Race has announced that March 15 will mark the publication of the 2012 race program. This document will offer essential information about the race, including pertinent facts about the course itself and about the cities of Newport and Bermuda. Additionally, the program will offer sailors boat inspection tips, how-to articles, and more.
As for the race itself, the 48th Newport Bermuda Race will commence on July 15 of next year. While it may seem like a ways off yet, race officials say participants and spectators should start planning now, as Bermuda hotel space is difficult to come by.
Bruce Tulio, who is also known as a Ferrari enthusiast, surfer, and pilot, is a fan of the Newport Bermuda event, and has even raced in it himself on multiple occasions. Says Bruce Tulio, “It is a great event for racing enthusiasts and sailors because there is real value placed on friendly and fair competition. The event has always been family-oriented and devoted to simply enjoying the rush and exhilaration of competitive sailing.”
Bruce Tulio notes that even in years when he is not participating in the race itself, he is vigilant to keep up with its proceedings, and follows the action as closely as he can.
The Newport Bermuda Race has been one of the premier events in the competitive sailing world for a hundred years now. The 48th Newport Bermuda Race will commence on July 15, 2012. More information about the race’s history, and details about registering, can be found at http://www.BermudaRace.com.
