The Transpacific Yacht Race from Los Angeles to Hawaii is one of the oldest and most prestigious ocean races in the World, first raced in 1906 and held biennially nearly every year since. Besides the long length, downwind tradewinds sailing, and iconic finish in paradise, this year’s 50th Transpac makes this race even more special. No wonder the entries are already up to over 100 yachts, with many overseas teams signed on to participate as well.

Sevenstar is the logistics partner of choice for the global transports of these members of the Transpac fleet, and will be providing tailored solutions from Australia, the USA, Europe and the Caribbean.

In the build up to what could be one of the most popular Transpac races in its 112-year history, organizers from the Transpacific Yacht Club have just received their 50th entry to next year’s 50th running of this 2225-mile classic biennial ocean race from Los Angeles to Honolulu. Never before has there been this many entries this far in advance to the first start planned for July 10, 2019.

“This has been a long term dream of mine to do this race, and I’m thrilled to have this opportunity,” said Peter Salusbury from Vancouver, who has entered his Paul Bieker-designed Longboard, a Riptide 35 Mk II built by Jim Betts in 2012. “This race is what this boat was designed to do, so we are really looking forward to this!”
