Aloha and welcome to the 2014 Victoria to Maui International Yacht Race
Your Committees from the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and the Lahaina Yacht Club have been preparing for your participation since September 2012. Come and enjoy a fun filled week of pre-race activities in Victoria, the Capital City of British Columbia and one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.
From Victoria, we give you a rare ocean race that takes both flat out racing skills and strategic decision-making. Vic-Maui challenges sailors to demonstrate their weather routing and navigational skills. Understanding the weather is critical when making decisions on leaving the Straits of Juan De Fuca and sailing off the Washington, Oregon and Northern California coasts to get to the trade winds. Success depends on predicting the present and future position of the North Pacific High pressure zone.
In Lahaina you will enjoy Hawaiian hospitality including an arrival party and the awards banquet, as well as a well-deserved sojourn in a tropical paradise.
The Victoria to Maui International Yacht Race, first contested in 1968, is the pinnacle of Pacific Northwest ocean racing. Vic-Maui runs every second year, starting in July from Victoria, British Columbia and finishing near Lahaina, Maui, a distance of approximately 2308 nautical miles
