San Francisco to Hawaii
2400 NM OF HARD OCEAN ROWING
A Race unlike any you've experienced before...
With a distance of 2400 nautical miles, the Great Pacific Race is one of the toughest races on earth. Teams made up of 2 or 4 crew, all competing in identical boats, will be entirely self supported and unassisted from the start gun in San Francisco until the finishing line in Hawaii.
Push your limits, discover who you really are, no distractions, no clutter, just you, your crew, your boat, your goal, and the Pacific. You will see shooting stars and the most incredible skies. You will experience nature in a way that few people can even imagine, no tour can ever replicate and no documentary can truly explain.
Your team will be challenged, physically, mentally and emotionally, by the greatest force on earth, the Ocean. Sleep deprevation, physical and mental fatigue, salt sores, weight loss and the forces of nature will challenge your will to breaking point. But every pull of the oar will bring you closer to the biggest sense of achievement you could ever imagine.
You will be at one with your boat, and closer to your team mates than you ever thought possible, but for safety teams will be monitored 24/7 for the entirity of the race by the race directors. They willl assist in weather routing and be on hand to muster support quickly, should it be needed.
“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.”
