Did they jump the gun?
Race organizers for the 2020 Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii have announced their decision to cancel the 2020 race, with the next race to be held the week of July 4, 2022. “We’re terribly disappointed to take this step to cancel the 2020 race, but the health and safety of our participants, partners, and the many supporting volunteers must take priority,” said Pacific Cup Commodore Michael Moradzadeh.
An array of pre-race events and meetings are held at Richmond Yacht Club on San Francisco Bay. “Many of our members have raced in the Pacific Cup, and it’s been our pleasure to host racers and the race organizers for the events leading up to the race,” said Inge Lundegarrd, Commodore of Richmond Yacht Club. “We’re sad not to see the race go off in 2020, but we support this difficult decision. RYC is looking forward to a great 2022.”
