Singlehanded Transpac – Sailing from San Francisco to Hawaii ALONE!

This is the 30 year anniversary of the first Singlehanded Transpac held back in 1978. The Singlehanded TransPac started on July 12 from the Corinthian Yacht Club in San Francisco Bay, and finishes at beautiful Hanalei Bay in Kauai at ‘The Tree’ on the beach.

The Singlehanded Transpac race from San Francisco to Kauai is no ordinary ocean sailing race. No corporate sponsors, mostly low-budget boats, and the most non-competitive group of ocean racers around are now sailing on their 2400 mile journey from San Francisco California to Kauai Hawaii.

The smallest sailboat in the Singlehanded Transpac is a cal 20 and the biggest is an open 60 yacht.

Current Singlehanded Transpac record holder for a monohull sailboat is the Open 60 “Wild Thing” (10 days, 22 hours, 53 minutes) sailed by Ray Thayer. The current Singlehanded Transpac multihull record is held by the late Steve Fossett on the ORMA 60 foot trimaran “Lakota” (7 days, 22 hours, 38 minutes).

    Do you know of any Type 1 Diabetic sailors who have completed this race? I am looking to be the first at something and this race has always been on my mind.
