Transpac Race extends entry deadline
Published on January 28th, 2021
With the first of three starts now less than six months away, the 51st edition of the biennial Los Angeles to Honolulu Transpac race have 52 registered yachts, with race organizers at the Transpacific Yacht Club extending the deadline for Standard Entry Fee payment from March 1 to April 30, 2021.
“We felt that this year people need a little more time for their planning and not feel rushed due to an early entry fee deadline,” said TPYC Commodore Jim Eddy. “The turnout so far is quite strong, we have a lot of enthusiasm for this race, and we look forward to assisting our entries with their planning needs.”
In other Transpac news, the Cabrillo Way Marina in San Pedro has been chosen as the new 2021 Transpac pre-start venue, where entries will have preferred rates to moor their boats and have plenty of space available for gear and equipment organization and shipment prior to the race starts in July.
