Let’s hope Covid-19 allows this to happen

Newport Harbor Yacht Club (NHYC) is pleased to announce the opening of entries for its biennial Newport Beach, California to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico international yacht race starting March 19, 2021. Information regarding the race and entry can be found on the event website . Regatta Chairman, John Curci, recently visited Cabo to meet with officials and they are eager to welcome the fleet in March. He encourages Skippers to enter early to help with planning and for them to make berthing and hotel arrangements sooner rather than later as the spaces fill up quickly in Cabo.

The 800 mile yacht race begins off the picturesque seaside city of Newport Beach, sending the boats racing down the Baja Peninsula to the spectacular finish off of Cabo San Lucas. The race is open to fully crewed monohull and multihull boats of 35’ or larger, specifics which are covered in the Notice of Race. Early entry fees of $1,000.00 are available until January 31, 2021.

Originally run in 1971, the NHYC “Cabo Race” has provided offshore sailors a challenging downwind race to warmer waters for nearly 5 decades. Held during the same odd years as the TransPac Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, the Cabo Race attracts many of the same boats looking to maximize quality downwind racing on the West Coast. The members of NHYC are looking forward to seeing your entry soon.
