Pacific Cup 2022 - The fun race to Hawaii

Presented by: The Pacific Cup Yacht Club

Race begins: July 4, 2022 in San Francisco Bay

The FUN Race to Hawaii, the Pacific Cup, has taken sailors from San Francisco Bay to Kaneohe Hawaii since 1980. With a focus on training, information, and ohana (family), the race has helped many voyagers hone their skills for ocean voyaging, whether in a hard-fought battle against world-class professionals or a challenging transit with family and friends. Either way, this mostly downwind race features some of the most enjoyable sailing on the planet, going on for days!  For more information, go HERE.

Ocean Navigator is a proud sponsor of the 2022 race!

Banner Year for 2022 Pac Cup: We have a (full) waiting list

There’s nothing like pent-up demand. With the cancellation of the 2020 race due to COVID, a significant number of our entrants simply rolled their entries over to 2022. Add to that a healthy dose of new and returning racers from prior years, and we have a very complete entry line.

A bit over a month ago, we had a flood of entries from the larger “sled-like” boats. One can only assume that the rumor mill got churning among that crowd as they assumed — correctly — that we might be activating the waiting list. The sudden rise in entrant count led us to activate the wait list.

As of today, we have 90 boats enrolled as entrants and a fluctuating number on the wait list. “There’s usually about a 30% dropout,” says Commodore Jim Quanci. “We’ve always been able to start everyone who signs up.”

The waiting list filled up rapidly and we have, for now, closed the list in order not to raise false hopes.
