Coming Up

The racing calendar in the third week of November is generally pretty light, and this year is no exception. A couple of options this Sunday: casual Laser racing at Richmond YC, and the (also casual) Chowder race at Berkeley YC.

The dates for the next Pacific Cup have been announced. The Pacific Cup Yacht Club has chosen Monday, July 11, 2016, as the first start day of the 2016 Pacific Cup Race. In 2015, seminars designed to help racers prepare and qualify for this transpacific race include a Safety at Sea Seminar at Encinal YC on May 17 and two Pacific Offshore Academy Seminars to be held at Richmond YC on Saturday, June 13, and Saturday, October 17, 2015. If you're interested in doing the 2016 Pacific Cup Race, go to now and sign up to start receiving pre-race information.
