Transpacific Yacht Club Membership

Membership in Transpacific Yacht Club carries unique significance among all ocean racers. For more than 100 years we have sailed across the Pacific Ocean to our tropical paradises in Hawaii and Tahiti. The Transpacific Yacht Club membership card is your sign of accomplishment and signals your support of these great races, and the spirit of Aloha and a bond with the sailors who went before and those to follow in your wake.

Among the benefits of membership is to be associated with and have contact info for other members of this prestigious and unique sailing organization.

Membership dues cover rising costs in conducting Transpac races (e.g., LB dock rental, Honolulu slip fees, awards ceremony).
