While we have no multihulls or fast rockets like Truth this year, our current fleet’s rating spread is very typical of the race historically.
With Jibeset showing 35 boats registered to date, we ask, “Could this be the record-breaking year?”
In the history of the race there have been a total of 335 entrants, 280 finishers, or 294 counting FAD. It is not clear that DNS are not lumped in with DNF in the table above.

Some more history of the first Singlehanded TransPac. Thanks once again to Jacky for the scans.
