Every entrant gets a goodie bag, tee-shirt, fresh Peet’s coffee, snacks from Newman’s Own Organics and Clif Bar. And…..you get a Hawaiian plate lunch form Aloha Island Grill. Participants enjoy a challenging course, a family-friendly atmosphere, and a great raffle.
Date: Friday, June 12th from 4 pm to 7 pm at the Santa Cruz Harbor Beach near the Crow’s Nest Restaurant. You can still register for the race for a discounted price. Pick up your goodie bag, tee shirt, and look over the course map. This is a great time to meet other paddlers, discuss race tactics, and ponder the Monterey Bay currents.
