CALIFORNIA OFFSHORE RACE WEEK NEWS

California Offshore Race Week Posts NOR

The volunteer staff at CORW are proud to announce the posting of its NOR for the California Offshore Race Week. Offshore Race Week is the exciting grouping of three California coastal races, five yacht clubs and one in-port race under an overall trophy. We’d like to thank SD Boatworks, North Sails, Ullman Sails, Mount Gay Rum and The Pirates Lair for making this race come to life! Race one or race them all, definitely get in on this inaugural event. Please sail over to our website for complete information and printable NOR!

California Offshore Race Week starts on Friday, May 27 in San Francisco Bay and sends the racers out under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. From there the fleet will make their way 88nm to the port city of Monterey for a day long layover to get rested and ready for the sled ride to Santa Barbara. Picking up on Sunday, May 29, the Coastal Cup starts in Monterey Bay and runs 200nm around Point Conception and into Santa Barbara. A multi-day layover in Santa Barbara will allow racers to repair damage and experience the local scene and all that this beautiful city has to offer. Santa Barbara Yacht Club will be hosting shore side parties and all the racers are invited to a ‘just for fun’ in-port race on Wednesday afternoon, which will see the offshore crews link up with the local Beer can racers who will also be on the water that day. The final leg starts on Friday, June 3 with the SoCal 300 sending the fleet through the channel islands on their way to San Diego, a total trip of 254nm. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, June 5 at San Diego Yacht Club. California Offshore Race Week has been endorsed by Offshore Racing Association as the “California Offshore Championship”, hence the winner will receive the trophy and title of the 2016 California Offshore Champion.
