Transpacific Course World Record 3 Days 16 Hours 52 Minutes and 03 seconds

The past few years we have had a good share of success with at least one wrong turn in our racing program. When Brian Thompson and I were planning the PHAEDO3 program we had a wish list of races and records which would be nice to attempt if we had a MOD70. The Transpacific World Record was the crown jewel of our dreams. Serious talk of a MOD70 began on our long journey home after dismasting the Gunboat PHAEDO during the Trans Pac Race of 2013. It was in this race when we watched the Trimaran LENDING CLUB take off over the horizon, seeking this very difficult record. They came heartbreakingly close to the record, but it was not to be. Then just before the Trans Pac 2015 they  were back this time with a bigger weapon. Faced the tough choice of going for the race or taking an excellent record window a few days before, they made the right choice and left before the race and went on to break the world record!

LA Dockage Option: Cabrillo Way Marina

The closest dockage option to the Transpac starting area at Point Fermin is at the Cabrillo Way Marina in San Pedro. Here there are a great variety of deep water slips and end ties available, lots of free parking, and its a short drive or walk to the bar at LAYC as well.

Call Mike or Dawn at Cabrillo Way Marina, they also run the TPYC dry storage facility, and are doing the marina reservations for Transpac also. They can be reached at (310) 521-0200. More info at http://cabrilloway-marina.com.
