Los Angeles, California – Race managers at the Transpacific Yacht Club are pleased to announce that next July’s 50th biennial edition of the 2225-mile Transpac race from Los Angeles to Honolulu has set a new record of 82 entries to date. The previous record was 80 entries 40 years ago in the 1979 edition of this classic ocean race first sailed in 1906.

“We knew this 50th edition would be popular, and we’re really pleased to see this exceptional interest in the race,” said TPYC Commodore Tom Hogan. “There have never before been so many teams entered so early in the cycle. This really helps our planning because we have high standards for giving everyone who participates the very best in Aloha hospitality when they finish.”

Unlike most buoy race regattas, classic ocean races  attract a wide variety of entries. Skippers bring that wide variety because their “hardware” (boats) may be different, but the “software” (people) are the same in their desire to enjoy the experience, challenge themselves, and build camaraderie and rapport among friends and crew mates.
