Rainbow Harbor berthing

Rainbow Harbor


Be in the center of all the action!

Rainbow Harbor is again slated to be the Mainland home of the Transpacific Yacht club. The Harbor is located just off Downtown Long Beach with the pre-race festivities all within walking distance. The City of Long Beach has graciously offered to provide some complimentary berthing in Rainbow Harbor for yachts participating in the Transpacific Yacht Clubs 2015 race to Hawaii. This space will be complimentary to participants from July 6th through the time of the yacht’s start date for the race.

Tahiti 2016 Race Announcement


Transpac YC announces the Tahiti 2016 Race

Transpac has received several inquiries from interested sailors about another race from Los Angeles to Tahiti. First run in 1925 and then popular from the 50s through the 70s, in recent years, Transpac YC has resumed this legendary race. The race starts off Pt Fermin in San Pedro, then Catalina to port, across the Pacific and the Equator, leaves the Tuamoto Atolls to port, and finally finishes at the Northern tip of the island of Tahiti at Pointe Venus. 3700 nautical miles, and another famous Transpac welcome to Papeete by the Yacht Club de Tahiti where the Fritz Overton Memorial Trophy resides.

2016 is the time to do it again!
