51st Transpac despite COVID clouds

After a long winter and spring that made planning even more difficult due to COVID uncertainty, the fleet for this year’s Transpacific Yacht Race (aka, the Transpac) is at last in their final days of preparation.

This biennial ocean racing classic organized by the Transpacific YC is in its 51st edition of offering high seas adventure for 2225 miles from the start off Point Fermin in Los Angeles to the finish line off Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Just as in past years, TPYC is staggering the start dates in an effort to compress the fleet’s finish times, with the slower entries setting off on July 13, faster entries on July 16, and the fastest entries starting on July 17.
