West Coast’s largest keelboat regatta

Published on June 7th, 2015

Long Beach Race Week (LBRW), the West Coast’s largest keelboat regatta, is planned for June 26-28, 2015. More than 150 boats are expected to turn out for one-design and PHRF buoy racing on both ocean and outer harbor courses; with random leg courses for PHRF and ORCA. A discount of $50 for entries on or before June 8.

This event will serve as the Catalina 37 National Championship regatta; the West/Pacific Coast Championships for J/109, Open 5.70 and Schock 35 fleets; and is a High Point Series event for SoCal J/70, J/80, J/105, J/109 and J/120 sailors. Plus, the annual Yacht Club Challenge will see hosts Long Beach Yacht Club (LBYC) and Alamitos Bay Yacht Club (ABYC) battle it out with other regional clubs, in the team sailing competition.

LBRW offers plenty of shoreside fun too, with events at both ABYC and LBYC – and water taxis to shuttle sailors back and forth – in addition to epic nightlife along nearby Second Street, in Belmont Shore. Both ABYC and LBYC offer free storage and berthing for all competing boats June 22 through 29.
