Los Angeles, California - May 13, 2014 The Transpac Board of Directors, meeting at Long Beach YC, have announced that the first start for the next race to Honolulu will be Monday, July 13, 2015. This date, slightly later than usual, is timed to allow for better winds later in the summer and moonlit skies as the boats approach Honolulu. Commodore Dan Nowlan commented that the traditional sendoff parties and competitors meetings will be held on the weekend prior to the first start. Transpac’s sendoff gala parties are almost as famous as the arrival parties in Honolulu. The Honolulu Committee of Transpac is gearing up for the renowned Aloha welcome for the racers after they cross the Diamond Head finish line.
