The Bermuda Challenge is a 780-mile open ocean run from New York Harbor, off Liberty Landing Marina (Bouy C1), to Gates Fort, on the Town Cut Channel, Bermuda. It was conceived by Boating editor, David Seidman, during the 1990's as a way to advance and showcase the technology of recreational boats and marine propulsion. The current record of 15 hours and 48 minutes was set by Tyson Garvin and Chris Fertig in August, 2013. It is open to boats of 40-foot LOA and less. BOATING is the keeper of record.
