The Great Pacific Race is the biggest, baddest human endurance challenge on the planet. Teams of one, two and four compete against each other in the world’s first rowing race on the Pacific. The Great Pacific Race 2014 starts on June 7th and will see 15 teams 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 course is the 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 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, rowing an ocean is possible for anyone.
Entries for the 2014 race are now closed but entries for the Great Pacific Race 2016 are now open.
