Registration for the 2022 Vic-Maui International Yacht Race opened on January 15 and within a few days, four boats committed to the race, while several other registrations are progressing. With a 25-boat maximum, those dreaming of a yacht race to paradise will want to reach out soon—the super-early deadline in the Notice of Race is March 31, 2021. The Lahaina class makes it possible for well-found cruisers to pursue this once-in-a-lifetime tropical race. For offshore race yachts, this can be your opportunity to challenge the 8-day, 9-hour, 17-minute record achieved by Valkyrie in 2016. A true challenge for navigators—there’s no single formula for success in the 2,308-mile race.
Boating BC is hosting FREE registration for the February 24-27 virtual Vancouver International Boat Show and Vic-Maui will hold 3 video conferences, your opportunity to discover the adventure and wild fun.
