The Island of Bermuda is very proud of its warm turquoise sea, beautiful beaches, safe harbours and some of the best swimming, sailing and on-the-water experiences to be found anywhere on the planet. Bermuda also boasts the most northern coral reefs in the world and although North of the Tropic of Cancer, the climate is subtropical because of the influence of the Gulf Stream. When the Tall Ships Regatta arrives in Bermuda, the 35th America’s Cup, and J-Class racing will also be taking place. This will be a sailing spectacle for the duration of the festival.
