The offshore racing season continues this summer with the West Coast favorite California Offshore Race Week.
The week-long journey down the California coast is broken into three separate races and is hosted by Encinal Yacht Club, Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, Santa Barbara Yacht Club and San Diego Yacht Club.
Skippers and crews are encouraged to add the entirety of the CORW to their bucket list, but have the option to opt into any of the individual legs.
- Spinnaker Cup (San Francisco to Monterey): May 28-29
- Coastal Cup (Monterey to Santa Barbara): May 30-May 31
- SoCal 300 (Santa Barbara to San Diego): June 2-4
San Diego Yacht Club’s hosted leg of the race with Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the SoCal 300, started as a stand alone event. In 2016, the race synced up with the Spinnaker Cup and the Coastal Cup, resulting in the California Offshore Race Week. As of late April, about 20 boats have registered for the SoCal 300 and 10 of them signed up for the full-week adventure. Those that have sailed in the SoCal 300 in the past can expect to see a similar race format from previous years. With the steady growth of the event since its founding, the SoCal 300 seems to remain as popular as ever.
