Important Race Notice:
The Coastal Cup is a category 2 event and therefore requires all entries to comply with the ISFA US Sailing's Safety at Sea Seminar certification regulation.
This year the Coastal Cup finishes at Santa Catalina Island, located 22 miles south-southwest of Los Angeles, California. Santa Catalina is a part of the Channel Islands of California archipelago. The town of Avalon and Avalon Bay is the most populus part of the island. Avalon has a very mild subtropical climate with warm temperatures year-round and is a favorite destination for local and out of town tourist.
Racing down the coast to Santa Catalina Island is fun and challenging, featuring a wide range of conditions - from the unpredictable upwind beat out past Land's End, the white knuckle spinnaker reaching off the treacherous Pt. Conception and Pt. Sur, to ghosting in the light morning breezes through or around the Channel Islands to the finish at Santa Catalina. There is truly something to satisfy every sailing appetite.
Please consult this page for further updates and for race results in the coming weeks and months.
