Where: Santa Barbara Harbor Launch Ramp
When: September 12-13
Cost: $70/person for the weekend
Description: This event is by invitation only, and will focus on raising the top level of 29er sailing in the United States.
Santa Barbara Harbor is 15 minutes south from the Santa Barbara Airport (SBA), or 1.5 hours north of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Santa Barbara Airbus (www.sbairbus.com) connects from LAX to Santa Barbara in about 2.5 hours.
West Beach Inn is the closest hotel, directly across the street from the harbor, but several other (often less expensive) options are available in close proximity. Lots of good airBnB options are available for rent, but no matter where you stay, be sure to book early!
Best quick food at the harbor: On The Alley
Parking: Cost is about $12 per day to park in the city lot, and you can't go in and out, so if you don't have a trailer, park across the street from the launch ramp on Bath Street.
