TROPHY TIME AT THE 48TH TRANSPAC

Honolulu, Hawaii - A loud and resounding "Aahh - looohh - haaahh!" is how the final awards ceremony began for the 48th Transpac in celebration of not only the achievements of the winners in this 2225-mile ocean race, but the dozens of beautiful perpetual trophies that symbolize the deep heritage and traditions in the 111-year history of this classic ocean race, organized biennially by the Transpacific YC.

Hula dancing

The evening's opening act of Hula dancing celebrated the strong influence and richness of Hawaiian culture integral to this race, which was born of an idea by Hawaii's King Kalakaua in the late 19th century to enhance his nation's ties to the mainland.

The program then proceeded with help from emcee Chuck Hawley to bring to the stage the skippers, crews and navigators to receive 31 divisional awards in ORR, HPR and multihull handicap scoring, along with four specialty size awards, 11 navigator awards, 4 overall elapsed time awards, three overall corrected time awards, and 15 specialty awards to teams and individuals who made outstanding contributions and accomplishments to the race.

YB Leader board example

Race standings are being provided continuously on the Yellowbrick Tracking Leaderboard. You can check on the boats positions at anytime through the Yellowbrick Race Viewer and also directly through the Yellowbrick Transpac 2015 Leaderboard.

The latest results are avaiable by the Transpac Race Divisions and also ORR Overall standings.

Please remember that Transpac positions and standings during the race reflect a 6 hour delay. The positions displayed in the Race Viewer and also on the Leaderboard standings are delayed by 6 hours. Transpac has always done this to promote the greatest competition among the Navigators and crews in the race. All the Navigators are watching the weather and also the performance of the other boats in the race to gain the slightest edge on their competition. We realize that this is a little confusing and is especially noticeable at the start of the race when the information does not appear for 6 hours after the start. But Transpac has always felt that this is the fairest way to provide the maximum amount of information while also preserving the competitive nature of the race for all the crews who participate.

As the boats near Hawaiii and the Finish line at Diamond Head, the real time positions will be displayed for all the boats. This will happen when the boats are within 100 miles of the finish, and make their first ETA reports to the Race Committee in Honolulu. At that point the boats will be only hours from sailing across the finish line and completing their long journey across the Pacific.

Check back often as we will be updating the Transpac 2015 Schedule of Events with new events and updated information as they become available.
