This event will take ocean-rated boats from San Francisco to San Diego with stops in Monterey and Santa Barbara. Bringing the historic Spinnaker Cup and a revamped Coastal Cup together and joining in with the third running of the SoCal 300, racers have options of completing the entire week-long event, or they can join in for any of the individual races on their own. The schedule is set up to keep the racing fast and fun but also allow enough shore time for family and friends to meet the racers at stops along the way for a wonderful week-long tour of the California Coast.
