Honolulu Headquarters - The Shack


The Shack at Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. Transpac Race HQ

For over half a century the Transpac Shack has served as the communications center during the Transpac Race. Constructed out of telephone poles and plywood and a few other random pieces of timber, the “Shack” has been the gathering place for friends and family looking for information on the Transpac Race.

In 2011 a large group of Honolulu volunteers did major restoration on The Shack. New beams, new floors, new electronics, and especially new paint left her looking so much better! And then master wood carver Rick Houck created a new varnished hardwood sign to top it off. Mahalo Nui Loa everyone in Honolulu!


The Shack repainted and new sign welcomes Transpac racers in 2011.
