The Notice of Race has been published for the 2019 Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race.

The 38th Biennial Classic, hosted by the Boston Yacht Club and the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron will begin in Marblehead Harbor on Sunday, July 7, 2019 and follow a 363 nautical mile course to Halifax Nova Scotia. Awards will be made in Halifax on July 11.

“Publishing the notice of Race is significant because it sets in stone the 2019 event” said David Bows, Vice Commodore of the BYC. It can be found on the Marblehead-to-Halifax website under Entry/documents.

Anne Coulombe of the BYC and Richard Hinterholler of the RNSYS will return as Race Directors. Michael Simms of the RNSYS is co-chair.

“At the moment there are no significant changes to the race format,” Coulombe says. “But it is always important to follow our communications for any changes that may impact the race”.

Steele Auto Group, the prominent Atlantic Canadian company, is again the title sponsor for the Marblehead to Halifax Ocean Race.  Steele Auto Group is based in Halifax and owns 29 dealerships in the region.  “We’re thrilled to be a supporter of such a prestigious sailing event here in Halifax” stated CEO Rob Steele, a member of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, co-sponsor of the MHOR with the Boston Yacht Club.
