Aloha Send-off Party

Aloha partyAloha Send-off Party for Transpac 2013

On Saturday, July 11th, the Transpacific Yacht Club will host the Aloha Send-Off Party in the bandshell next to Gladstone’s Restaurant, located at 330 South Pine Avenue in Long Beach. The party, which is presented by Gladstone’s Restaurant, one of Transpac’s major sponsors, looks out onto Rainbow Harbor which will see many of the competitors docked in prior to their start.

Crew introCrew introductionsAll of the skippers and crews from the approximately 61 boats that will be participating in this year’s race are invited to attend. Tickets are $15.00 and everyone is encouraged to purchase the tickets you need in advance through the website. Tickets will be $20.00 at the door. All pre-purchased tickets will be available at the Skipper’s Bag pickup at Shoreline Yacht Club on Saturday, July 11th beginning at 10:00am PDT.

In addition to the tasty food and drink prepared by Gladstone’s, there will be a blessing of the fleet, the obligatory hula dancers associated with all things Hawaiian and introductions of all participants including skipper and crew. The doors open at 5:00pm PDT which should give the skipper’s time to easily get from the Skipper’s Meeting at the Aquarium of the Pacific to the party. Come join everyone to give each competitor a proper send off to Hawaii!
