New for this year, 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 produce a week-long schedule of races in a tour from Northern California to Southern California. The race will bring together three previously solo events: the Spinnaker Cup, the Coastal Cup and the SoCal 300 from May 27- June 4. In between races, the boats will have layover time along the coast to relax and meet up with friends and family.
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!
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.
