The Bermuda Race Organizing Committee has launched a new Super Yacht Division, responding to interest from captains of yachts over 90 feet on deck, with some different rules in place for the new division, which will be included in the 2016 Newport Bermuda Race.

?The Super Yacht Division will sail under some rules that are different from the rest of the fleet, and on a different rhumb line. For example, the Super Yacht Division will have a staggered start at a different time, for safety; a course that leaves Block Island and Bermuda to port [rather than starboard]; and some variations in the Safety Requirements where they conflict with the yacht?s classification society?s or flag state?s regulations.
