Organisers for the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club’s Bermuda Gold Cup match racing tournament regret to announce that the 2021 regatta will not be held in September as planned, but instead will be rescheduled to next year (the date is yet to be announced).
Last year the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club hosted the Gold Cup and the Open Match Racing World Championship amid the global pandemic, but its continuing effects have made sponsorship difficult to secure.
Gold Cup chair Leatrice Oatley said, “Planning and hosting an international event with competitors from many countries is a challenge in any given year, and even more so this year. Although we had many sponsors committed, we have been unable to secure a title sponsor. Rather than consider putting on a sub-par event, we will refocus our efforts for 2022 and beyond.”
