The Great Pacific Race is the biggest, baddest human endurance challenge on the planet. Ocean row boats of two and four people compete against each other in the world’s only human powered race on the Pacific. The next Great Pacific Race starts in June 4th 2016 when our teams from around the world will set out on a 2,400 mile journey across the world’s largest ocean from Monterey, California to Honolulu, Hawaii. This epic journey is expected to take between 30 and 80 days depending on the ability of the crew and the weather. Each boat carries no sails or engines and is only moved by the muscle of the crew pulling on the oars.
This extreme adventure is not for the faint hearted and the size of the challenge should not be underestimated. Each crew spend months preparing for the race, completing mandatory courses and gaining valuable experience on the water as many have never been in a row boat before deciding to take on this challenge. We provide exceptional levels of support, supplied by experienced experts through all stages of the journey from the first steps of campaign planning, to your arrival in Hawaii and we know you will be successful. With dedication, hard work and our support everyone has the potential to row the Pacific. If you have what it takes to row the Pacific then enter the Great Pacific Race 2016 now.
There are two options when deciding how to take part in the race.
Pay Per Seat – We offer individuals the opportunity to buy a seat on a four person crew. We provide a fast boat, race entry fee, boat shipping and all mandatory equipment meaning all you need to do is complete the mandatory training courses and arrive in Monterey with your food ready to go. The last team (Team Uniting Nations) to do this won the Great Pacific Race 2014 and set 4 new World Records in the process. This is the easiest way to row the Pacific. The cost is just £14,500 per seat for your chance to have an adventure of a lifetime. Contact us via the form on the contact page for more information.
Setup your own crew – You may have some friends who you want to row with. In this case you can enter the race and then buy a used or new boat to row in. We are able to help at all stages of your preparation from helping to source a suitable boat for your team to helping with the logistics of shipping your boat to the start of the race.
