The Trinidad race is our only long distance ocean race and has been going on for many years. This is two part race. First day goes to Trinidad and second day returns to Humboldt Bay. On the second day of the race there is a chili feed/potluck at the club house. Even if you miss the race don't miss a chance to come down and celebrate with those that have braved our local ocean!!

As with all of the races, there is a mandatory skippers' meeting at the beginning of day one for those who are interested in this race. The meeting is one hour before the scheduled start of leg one.

All HYC ocean races also require a coast guard inspection and sticker to be eligible. See below for the checklist. There are additional requirements spelled out in our standing race rules. Please contact our Vice Commodore for more information. Vessel Examiner Maggie Herbelin (445-2401) is happy to do inspections upon request.
