More than 60 boats have been entered in the 2023 Transpac race from Cabrillo Beach, Cali. to Honolulu (Ocean Navigator is a Transpac Race co-sponsor). The pace quickens now for the competitors and the race committee as the first start on June 27 approaches. Before the start there will be a skipper’s meeting and an aloha send-off party on June 24 on board the former US Navy battleship USS Iowa, which is docked in Los Angeles as a museum ship.
There will be three starts: Tuesday, July 27 for 17 boats (some boats slated for this start are provisional as they await their final rating), Thursday July 29 for 23 boats and Tuesday July 11 for the 26 largest and fastest boats.
