Transpac and PAC Cup races

Currently underway is the Transpac Yacht Race which starts in California and finishes in Hawaii, a race of more than 2000 nautical miles. It is run every 2 years and in the years in-between the PAC Yacht Club holds the Pacific Cup, also known as the “Fun race to Hawaii”.

3 Years ago, the then Commodore, Lindsay Gilbert took part in this epic journey and graciously wrote an account of his experience. Unfortunately this was never published, until now.

Many thanks to Lindsay for taking the time to write this piece. I really enjoyed reading this and hope all our friends do too.
