Newport to Cabo Race
J/World Offshore Racing Event
J/World Performance Sailing enters a team in the race from Newport Beach, CA to Cabo San Lucas at the end of the Baja peninsula held every two years. We compete with a team comprised of six amateurs and three of our world-class, professional coaches. Each individual is an active and equal member of the team, and everyone aboard gets to take turns at doing everything, including driving. The environment is, positive, and conducive to learning… and we’ll of course work hard to achieve a great finish! We have mad the podium in this event before, so come help us do it again!
For the 2019 event, we will be sailing our new Mark Mills designed DK46. Only twelve of these boats were built so they are all semi-custom, but they are renowned for their exceptional sailing characteristics across a wide range of conditions. She flies asymmetrical spins off a fixed prod, and conventional kites off a standard pole. A modern, wide-open cockpit hosts dual wheels and ample workspace for the crew, while a full interior makes going fast comfortable.
Students may be of various ability levels, from experienced offshore racers who enjoy the notion of joining a ‘turn-key’ program, to sailors who are looking to expand their horizons and learn more about offshore racing. The program will include a brief practice session prior to the race, all the onboard provisioning, entry fees, port fees, and delivery fees.

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.
