The 2020 edition of the Islands Race was the second fastest on record for the 108.0nm race track that starts from Long Beach, California and sends the fleet around offshore landmarks Santa Catalina Island and San Clemente Islands, and then to the finish off Point Loma in San Diego.

Hosting the race for the twenty-five-boat fleet for the 11th time were San Diego Yacht Club and Newport Harbor Yacht Club.

In the end, the trio of J/Crews that swept the podium of ORR Class 5 were jubilant! Leading the way was a newcomer to the race from Texas, Andrew Wescoat's J/109 HARM'S WAY. They not only won class, but finished third ORR Overall, just 4 seconds from the silver and only 5 minutes from the top of the podium! Putting up an excellent performance was Doug & Jack Jorgensen's J/111 PICOSA, taking second in ORR Class 5 and fifth overall. Rounding out the podium was Standish Fleming's J/125 NEREID, also taking sixth overall. That was an outstanding performance by those three top offshore teams!
