Tahiti 2016 Poster
Current boats planning on racing to Tahiti next Summer:
- Rio100 - Manouch Moshayedi
- Pyewacket - Roy P. Disney
Transpac YC is going forward with planning for another Tahiti Race next June. So far we have interest from several boats, including both Pyewacket and Rio100. Last run in 2012, the current record set by Doug Baker's Magnitude 80 in 2008 is 11 days 10 hours 13 minutes 18 seconds (average speed 13.0 knots).
The date we are looking at for starting the race is June 25, we are also considering a start June 18 which gives us a better moon. These dates get the boats in to Papeete just before or during the Tahitian Fete leading up to Bastille Day. I’m hoping our crews would enjoy that also.
We will be publishing info as it comes out here on the website at www.TranspacYC.com. Check it out.
Arrive in Papeete before the grand Tahitian Fete culminating at Bastille Day!
