CALIFORNIA OFFSHORE RACE WEEK NEWS

2016 News

New for this year, the 2016 California Offshore Race Week featured the combined forces of five yacht clubs along the California coast to produce a week-long schedule of races in a tour covering almost 600 miles of the California Coast line. The race brought together the Spinnaker Cup, Coastal Cup and SoCal 300 from May 27 - June 5. In between races, the boats had enough layover time in each port to make modifications to their boats for the next legs, participate in beer can races, return to work or just meet up with friends and family.

The 2016 California Offshore Race Week will feature the combined efforts of Encinal Yacht Club, San Francisco Yacht Club, Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, Santa Barbara Yacht Club and San Diego Yacht Club to provide a week-long schedule of races in a tour from Northern California to Southern California. The race will combine three previously solo events starting May 27 with the Spinnaker Cup, then the Coastal Cup and concluding with the SoCal 300 finishing on June 4.

See what the SoCal 300 is all about!

It was the success of last year’s inaugural SoCal 300- which starts with a 35-mile reach from Santa Barbara across “Windy Lane,” before turning the corner at Santa Rosa Island and rocketing down to San Diego- that spurred the new circuit. California Offshore Race Week, which kicks off in late May, links two tried-and-true regattas with the SoCal 300 in an all-too-logical romp down California’s scenic and wild waters.

Offshore racers in California got a new race in 2015, the SoCal 300, which for 2016 has launched a new circuit – California Offshore Race Week. Scuttlebutt editor Craig Leweck checks in with David Servais, SoCal 300 event coordinator, for an update.
