The Great Pacific Race is the biggest, baddest human endurance challenge on the planet. Teams of two and four compete against each other in the world’s only human powered race across the Pacific. The first Great Pacific Race was in the summer of 2014 and now it’s your chance for adventure. The Great Pacific Race 2016 will start in early June and will see crews from around the world battle it out on a grueling 2,400 mile stretch of the world’s largest ocean from Monterey, California to Honolulu, Hawaii which is expected to take between one and three months to complete. All participating boats are purpose built and governed by a set of event rules, they must also carry certain items of mandatory equipment to ensure safety. Of course for some just completing the race is an incredible challenge and we are committed to helping every crew equally to achieve a safe and successful ocean passage. Success in the Great Pacific Race requires a combination of skills, physical ability and mental toughness combined with willpower and determination. Perhaps surprisingly you don’t have to currently be a rower to row an ocean, as between the day you join the race and the race start your training will include learning how to row. Make no mistakes, rowing an ocean is a serious mental and physical challenge but, with the right preparation to gain experience and knowledge, as well as our support, you could row the Pacific.
Entries for the Great Pacific Race 2016 are now open.
