Pacific Rim Yachting Challenge

**EVENT CANCELLED**

Due to the uncertainty of the status of the Corona Virus COVID-19 and the long wait time requirements for Visas, the hosting country has cancelled the event.

Welcome to the 2020 Pacific Rim Yachting Challenge Regatta (also known as the “PacRim 2020”) site.  In 2020 the regatta will be held in Nakhodka, Russia, September 12-21, 2020.

We are thankful to the city of Nakhodka for stepping up to host this year as Tateyama, Japan was not able to host this year due to commitments for the 2020 Summer Olympics being held in the Tokyo area. We would like to have a strong showing of participants to support Nakhodka so be sure to attend the planning meetings and complete the application form (ambassador or racer) as they are now available. We are limited to 20 total participants due to home stay limitations. Applicants will be evaluated by a selection committee based on BYC and Sister City participation and sailing/racing experience (if you are applying as a sailor). Membership in Bellingham Sister Cities is required.

Below is the schedule of planning meetings and the event schedule (posted as they become available).
