West Marine is supplier for historic ocean race

West Marine was named the official supplier of the Newport Bermuda Race.

Today, West Marine opens its flagship store in Middletown, R.I. The new store will provide Newport Bermuda Race sailors free transportation between the Newport waterfront and the store during the week before the race, which starts June 18.

"West Marine is pleased to have this relationship with the historic Newport Bermuda Race," said Chuck Hawley, West Marine vice president for product information, in a statement. "As the oldest ocean race and also one of the most challenging, with its 635-mile course from Newport across the Gulf Stream to Bermuda, the race takes seamanship, safety and gear very seriously, just as we do at West Marine."
