The 2024 edition of the Pacific Cup is set to start the week of July 15, 2024. During that week, scores of well-prepared boats and crews will head out the Golden Gate and, after a few miles or hours, turn a bit left to head toward the welcoming harbor at Kaneohe.
If our past 44 years are any indication, our participants will see sealife, magnificent stars, a full moon, and most enticingly, 2070 miles of (mostly) downwind sailing in surf-worthy conditions. Participants step off their boats with a cold maitai, a lei, and a profound sense of accomplishment.
Leading up to the race, Pacific Cup volunteers host and lead preparation and safety seminars (with parties) and offer advice to the entrants. Mandatory boat inspections and a required gear list help contribute to a safe passage, though final responsibility belongs to the boat itself, of course.
The sense of family, 'ohana, within the Pac Cup community is palpable. We hope you will be part of it.
