News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda – The Bermuda Police Service is reminding members of the public that the Around the Island Powerboat Race will take place 2pm Sunday, August 18th.

While the Bermuda Powerboat Association have put safety protocols in place for race participants and members of the public – including discouraging racers from coming too close to shore in the Elbow Beach area – residents that plan to be out on the water this Sunday are advised to avoid the racecourse and to be mindful of their surroundings.

Swimmers and scuba/free divers in particular should avoid the racecourse, with any divers ensuring that their positions are marked with a surface marker buoy.

Let’s make this year’s event as safe as possible for all users of Bermuda’s waters.
