Marion, MA – Applications for entry in the 2017 Marion Bermuda Race have flowed in at a record pace for the 2017 race since registration opened on September 15th. In the first 15 days, 30 yachts entered the 645-mile amateur classic. The Founders division claimed 29. The Big Boat Division has only one applicant so far, ‘Lilla’, a Briand 76. In 2011, ‘Lilla’ set the Marion Bermuda Race course record with an elapsed time of 68:58:45. Organizers expect the entry pace will slow, but also expect a large fleet. The race starts June 9, 2017.
