California Offshore Race Week
There is absolutely no other program like this. Anywhere.
J/World is excited to be adding another offshore event to our annual calendar. The popularity of these programs combined with the appeal of the new California Offshore Race Week has prompted us to commit Hula Girl and our coaches to the 2017 event, and we think it is going to be great fun!
CORW is the marriage of three events running consecutively: The Spinnaker Cup from San Francisco to Monterey. The Coastal Cup from Monterey to Santa Barbara. Then finally the SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. This is a perfect mix of increasingly long and challenging legs that will provide a perfect environment for this J/World Offshore Training Program.
J/World offers sailors the opportunity to join us aboard Hula Girl, our turboed 52 foot ULDB for the event. This boat is fantastic to sail and is fully equipped for competitive and safe offshore passagemaking. For more about the history of the famous HG, visit here.
Under the coaching of our J/World team and an impressive almost 2:1 student to instructor ratio, participants get to be involved with all aspects of racing the boat, from navigating and trimming, to doing bow and of course driving. If you want to learn the intricacies of offshore racing or are looking for the adventure of a lifetime, these programs are the ideal – if not the only – way to really learn what it is all about.
We begin with two days of training then set off on the three legs of racing from San Francisco to San Diego. Contact us for details.

About J World Offshore Programs
There are no other programs in the world like this. Period.
The offshore programs put together and managed by J/World are absolutely unique in the world of yachting. You are a truly active and integral member of an actual racing team. We don’t load the boat with clients to the point where no one gets to do anything. We won’t just park you over a grinding pedestal We aren’t just taking you for a ride like so many big boat programs. You are sailing the boat. You get to drive, trim, navigate… whatever your interests are, we’ll be sure that you get to exercise that muscle.
For most programs, we limit enrollment to six clients. With three coaches aboard, that’s a 2:1 ratio which means everyone aboard gets a ton of personal attention from our extremely experienced staff.
These programs are fully turn-key, and managed by a team of sailors who are hand selected for both their extensive sailing background, and their ability to coach well and share their knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm with others. The afloat staff is supported by our expert shore team, insuring that you have the time of your life.
The boat is owned by J/World. This is crucial… it is not some charterboat that we tap into for occasional use. It is our boat, campaigned regularly by our team. To you, this means that the equipment is on absolutely top condition, the boat is maintained to the highest competitive standards, and the safety equipment onboard is second to none.
The J World Offshore Programs are singular in the world of yachting. If you have heard of other pay to play programs or you have joined the ‘cattle boat’ programs that dominate the market, it’s time to rethink your experience. There is no other program in the world like J World Offshore.
