Westerly's build team is lead by Nacho Serna at Windward Yacht Center in Marina Del Rey, California.

The first edition of this race was run in 1906 and it is one of the longest and oldest among the world's classic ocean races, with a start line at Point Fermin in San Pedro and the finish line lying 2,220 miles away at Diamond Head in Honolulu.
