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.

February 3rd, 1928: the birth of a visionary idea in offshore yachting

NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Not every yacht club is founded by a man lying down. It was, however, a man lying down on February 3, 1928 who brought forth the Transpacific Yacht Club. We might add that the man was a serial founder. It was true in his profession of radiology, also in his field of passion, sailing, where he had already founded the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, Southern California Yachting Association and Pacific Coast Yachting Association. A contemporary said of him, “Al Soiland never seemed to rest,” and that was also true. On February 3, 1928 our man was in a hospital bed recuperating from an appendix operation, and Al Soiland had to be doing… something.

What he started, these many years later, now supports Transpac 50, coming up in July with a record 97 entries so far.
