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.”

Aarhus, Denmark – At the Yacht Racing Forum held this year in Aarhus, Denmark, the inaugural Mirabaud Sailing Video Awards were announced, and Chris Love Production’s highlight video “The Fleet is Away” from the 2017 Transpac Race won the Public Award category. With a theme similar to “Optimism,” the overall award-winning video from Cocoon Production in Switzerland, Love’s Transpac Race video highlighted the future of offshore sailing in the inspiration it brings to youth who want to take on the adventures being enjoyed now by adults.

Out of 44 videos submitted by professional videographers and producers, The Fleet is Away received the highest score of 8.22 based on a 1-10 scale in online voting, receiving 1307 votes.
