Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club to host opening event of 2018 Farr 40 Circuit
Cabrillo Beach and Long Beach were two of the favorite stops for Farr 40 owners when California hosted the International Circuit in 2014 and 2015.
With the class returning to the United States for the 2018 season, those proven venues are back on the calendar by popular demand.
Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club will host the opening event of the 2018 circuit (March 21-24) while Long Beach Yacht Club will serve as site for the Farr 40 North American Championship (May 9-12), the Class announced.
"Our owners have always enjoyed racing off southern California with Cabrillo Beach and Long Beach among the best locales we've ever been," Stagg said. "We have a strong West Coast fleet that will provide a solid foundation for those two regattas and most of the traveling boats have committed to competing."
The California swing during the spring will give Farr 40 programs an opportunity to sharpen their skills in advance of two events being held out of Chicago. As always, the season will culminate with the Farr 40 World Championship, being held Oct. 3-9 and hosted by Chicago Yacht Club.Read More
