Racers are gearing up for the June 28 start of the Singlehanded TransPac, a 2,120-mile race from San Francisco Bay to Hanalei Bay on the idyllic Hawaiian island of Kauai. To aid in their prep, the race committee has scheduled monthly seminars on a variety of topics that would help any sailor with their trip across the Pacific, and luckily the entire series is free and open to the general public.
Tonight’s talk is will be on the topic of ‘Sails & Rigging’, and though this is not a Pacific Cup seminar, racers in that event are encouraged to also attend. Doors to Oakland YC open at 6:30 p.m. — as does the no-host bar — and the presentation starts at 7:30. Click HERE for a complete list of upcoming seminars.
