Vic-Maui's trustees and committee chairs have concluded it is in the best interest of competitors and stakeholders to cancel the 2024 Vic-Maui International Yacht Race.

It is with heavy hearts and challenging emotions we have come to this conclusion.

The August 8th, 2023 wildfires on Maui were devastating. In addition to the complete loss of shoreside supports - the losses to residences, family, and friends of Lahaina - our Lahaina Yacht Club family - are monumental.

Our LYC family needs our help and requires time to heal.

We are committed to and will immediately start work on the 2026 Vic-Maui.

Our goal is to make 2026 a very special race, celebrating the rebuilding of Lahaina and celebrating the 60th anniversary of both the founding of LYC and of the first Vic-Maui in 1965.

Mahalo - Thank you - to our Vic-Maui community - competitors, volunteers, families, friends, and supporters around the world. We recognize and appreciate all your efforts and support.

We look forward to planning and sailing the 2026 Vic-Maui together.
