The inaugural Pacific Challenge started in June 2023 with up to 20 teams participating from around the World. The annual edition of this race will see teams starting from the historic harbour of Monterey, following the path of many adventurers and explorers of yester year. An incredible atmosphere of apprehension and excitement is guaranteed during the pre-race period as teams complete their final preparations to set off to row across the Pacific Ocean. A finish line as unique as Hanalei Bay on the stunning island of Kauai is hard to beat as the backdrop to what will be the most incredible, once in a lifetime adventure.
As a relatively new and untouched route, the Pacific challenge offers new adventures, new World Records and once in a lifetime experiences.
