Santa Barbara Yacht Club

This year marks the 10th Annual Santa Barbara Yacht Club Charity Regatta benefiting Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care. Since its inception in 2005, this event has cumulatively raised over $887,000 so that Santa Barbara County families have access to compassionate, quality health care. This year, event supporters will help to pass the $1 million cumulative giving mark! Guests will gather at the Yacht Club for a special champagne toast and water cannon salute before heading out on spectator boats for front row seats of the race. After the finish of the race, both crew and observers will head back to the Yacht Club to enjoy a delicious barbecue, lively music, spirited conversation and a wonderful program. This has become a signature event in Santa Barbara, and we hope this year will be another memorable Charity Regatta for the Santa Barbara community.

Registration for this event is currently closed.
