The Countdown to Pacific Cup 2016 is picking up.

On "Shadowside" we are pulling the last details together, getting ready to hop aboard and set out for Kaneohe Bay. Did I mention that there are about 10,000 "last details".

There are a couple more chances to practice before the big event:
  • April 16 - OYRA Lightship Race
  • May 21 - OYRA Duxship Race
  • June 11 - OYRA OYRA Farallones Race
  • June 25 - OYRA One Way to Half Moon Bay (Maybe)

Our start will be on Monday, July 11th, somewhere around noon, at the St. Francis Yacht Club on the Marina Green in San Francisco. From there it's about 2100 nautical miles to the finish line just outside Kaneohe Bay on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

After the finish it's time to switch gears from hard sailing to hard partying:

  • Wednesday, July 27 - Luau at Kaneohe YC
  • Thursday, July 28 - Mt. Gay Rum Party at KYC
  • Friday, July 29 - Awards Ceremony at KYC
Once we're underway, we plan to post daily reports to this blog site. If you want to stay abreast of what we are up to just check in once a day. To communicate with "Shadowside" just make a COMMENT to the blog and it will be relayed on to us..


  1. The best way to communicate with the "Shadowside" crew is to just leave a comment here on the blog. Of course,whatever you write is going to appear here for all the world to see.

  2. Thank you sharing the post. I am very enjoying and interested in the post.
