The staging area where the boats participating in the Great Pacific Race will be kept prior to the race start on June 7th is ready. Trying to inspect, or work on a small boat when it is in the water is difficult and there’s always the chance of dropping something into the depths of the marina…not ideal! The staging area will provide everything the crews could need in the final stages of their preparation whilst providing the residents of Monterey with a free spectacle. If you would like to take a look at the boats in the staging area then please do come by and say hi. The staging area is open from 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week from May 24th until June 7th just head for Monterey Marina and The Wharf Marketplace. We guarantee you won’t miss us.
