  • 2015 Transpac

    Entries are completed: Clicky and if there is an overwhelming
    theme to the 2015 edition of the Trans Pacific Yacht Race, it would be "Records Will Fall"

    With 3 100's (2 canters and one stationary keel) and the 105' Lending Club on the line, the existing records should crumble, barring major catastrophes or extremely bad wind.

    Back in a bit with a look at some of the local boats and local sailors sailing in this edition!

    Saturday July 18th Starts

    Thursday July 16th Start

    Monday July 13th Start

    1st start just a week away!


    • #3
      I think the late starters in the Transatlantic Race are wishing they were sailing to Hawaii instead!


      • #4
        Staggered starts suck. They're for the organizers, not the racers.

        Long live the SH TransPac - one start, parties for two weeks under The Tree.


        • #5
          Hard to hold/feed/house crews from 60 yachts that may have 18 -20 members for 2 weeks.

          My 2 cents.


          • #6
            Most don't stay in HI for more than a few hours after they hit the dock, but the results are skewed forever.

              The days of the Pan Am Clipper Cup are sadly missed.


              • #8
                For those who weren't around yet, Clipper Cup > Kenwood Cup. (You really are the IOR Geezer.)

                  What happened with the Sauza Cup at Lahaina YC?


                  • #10
                    I don't know but the entry fee was $5 or a label from a Sauza tequila bottle - hard to beat that.

                    Now the LYC markets its sports bar. Times have changed.


                    • #11
                      I suppose the introduction to professional sailors has prohibited the affordability for owners to engage in such prolonged activities.

                      The island racing was epic, such a shame folks spend all that time getting to the islands but can't linger and savor.

                        Nor Cal Has Talent!

                        Every two years, the bi-annual march from Point Fermin to Diamond Head takes place and with it, a large contingent of Norcal sailors and boats join the parade.
                        2015 is no different and we present a partial list of Norcal talent scattered about the fleet to provide PD readers with a bit of insight of who's on what.

                        We have highlighted those we recognize in bold. If you see omissions please note and we shall add to list!
