The 49th running of the classic Transpacific Race will kick off with the first starts on Monday, July 3, 2017. The Aloha sendoff events will be rocking Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach the weekend of July 1st and 2nd.
Boats will be arriving off the Diamond Head finish line as soon as July 10th, with the legendary Aloha welcome parties in Ala Wai Yacht Basin all that weekend and on into the next week.
The registered fleet of boats is growing, lead by first-to-enter Bill Lee who is returning in 2017 with the legendary “Merlin”. Join the fun, it will be another great race! Aloha!
