|Additional Regatta Information:|
A Challenging 582NM race for singlehanded and doublehanded racers, the Guadalupe Island Race was originally designed as a qualifying race for the Singlehanded TransPac, sponsored by the Singlehanded Sailing Society in San Francisco. In the years since its inaugural run in 1981, it has grown into a challenging and competitive event in its own right. While definitely not for the uninitiated, this race of six hundred miles, held in even-numbered years, is a significant test of seamanship, strategy, and endurance. It is a race that typically involves a full range of sailing conditions, and that rewards an all-round boat with an adaptable skipper.
