Spinnaker Cup Race from San Francisco to Monterey over Memorial Day Weekend
The California Offshore Race Week has been a premier offshore California regatta series since 2015 and is made up of three different races:
  • Spinnaker Cup (San Francisco to Monterey): May 29-30
  • Coastal Cup (Monterey to Santa Barbara): May 31 - June 1
  • SoCal 300 (Santa Barbara to San Diego): June 3-5

Over Memorial Day Holiday weekend the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club in collaboration Monterey Marina will host the annual SPINNAKER CUP race from San Francisco to Monterey. More than 40 sailing vessels will start from San Francisco Bay’s St. Francis Yacht Club and finish in Monterey near the end of the Municipal Wharf in Monterey. Leading up to the race Monterey Marina will provide berthing for the support vessels and the racing vessels.

Even if you won't be sailing this will be a fun weekend to see all the action on the bay!
