Known as the Transpac, this will be the 52nd edition of this classic 2025-mile ocean race held biennially since 1906.
The Transpac has three start dates to help compress the fleet on the race course and in arrival dates at the finish line at Diamond Head in Honolulu. All starts are 1 mile off Point Fermin in San Pedro, with the first wave leaving on Tuesday, June 27th, the second on Thursday, June 29th and the third on Saturday, July 1, 2023. Any fast multihull entries may start later, depending on their speed. All dates for pre- and post-race activities will be published on the event website.
The pre-start venue for participants will be located at Cabrillo Marina in San Pedro, where a race village is planned for sailors, their family and friends, sponsors and the public as well. At the finish most boats will be in the Ala Wai Harbor in Waikiki at Hawaii Yacht Club, Waikiki Yacht Club or in assigned slips in the marina. Deeper draft boats will be at other locations nearby.
