The CA Offshore Race Week - Spinnaker Cup, Coastal Cup, SoCal 300 – is adding another course that will energize and excite the fastest boats in the Transpac fleet: the CA 500. Run concurrently with the SoCal 300, this race will offer an extended race course that will give challenging oceanic conditions to fast monohulls over 45 feet in length with Transpac ratings over 1.06 and multihulls with Transpac ratings over 1.40 – a perfect training race for Transpac.

In a record year of interest, it's perhaps fitting that the 100th entry to the 50th edition of the Transpacific Yacht Club'sbiennial 2225-mile Transpac race from LA to Honolulu is at 55 years old one of the oldest in the race yet also one of the most innovative in the last half-century of yacht design.

Chris Welsh's Spencer 65RAGTIME will be making her 17th race to Hawaii in July, more than any other yacht in the history of this race. Welsh has been an owner of RAGTIME since 2004, and since then has raced three Transpacs (2005, '07, '09), one race to Tahiti (2008) and the Sydney-Hobart Race (2008). “It's been ten years since we last sailed to Hawaii,” said Welsh, “so we're looking forward to having some fun again.”

The Transpacific Yacht Club and Archipelagoes Tahiti are pleased to announce their plans to organize the 16th edition of the Transpac Tahiti Race in late May 2020. This is one of the world's longest classic ocean races, a 3570-mile voyage from Los Angeles to Papeete first sailed in 1925, with a small but influential group of boats and sailors counted among its alumni. Only 72 entries have raced to Tahiti in its entire history, with the last edition held 7 years ago in 2012.

Yet now the interest is strong, with over 40 guests attending a press announcement this evening at Los Angeles Yacht Club.
