2015 Transpac Race to start on July 13

Published on May 15th, 2014

The Transpac Board of Directors announced the first start for the next race to Honolulu will be Monday, July 13, 2015. This date, slightly later than usual, is timed to allow for better winds later in the summer and moonlit skies as the boats approach Honolulu.

Commodore Dan Nowlan commented that the traditional sendoff parties and competitors meetings will be held on the weekend prior to the first start. Transpac’s sendoff gala parties are almost as famous as the arrival parties in Honolulu. The Honolulu Committee of Transpac is gearing up for the renowned Aloha welcome for the racers after they cross the Diamond Head finish line.

The second and third start dates, which will follow the first start, will be announced as soon as possible. There will be upcoming race seminars and other announcements from Transpac soon.

The Notice of Race will be the next item to be released, expected in the next 30 days.
