Paddle Out for SBMM: Celebrating the Santa Barbara Channel
11 June, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
Join us for the second annual Paddle Out for the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) fundraiser on Saturday, June 11, from 1:00-4:00 pm at Leadbetter Beach in Santa Barbara, CA. This event focuses on SBMM’s mission to “celebrate the Santa Barbara Channel and illuminate our rich connections with the sea.” The community is invited to participate by sponsoring the event or a paddler, paddling out with us (on a self-powered craft), watching from the shore, and attending the opening ceremony. Attendees will enjoy delicious food from Romanti-Ezer, hear surf music by the Wrinkled Teenagers, and have the opportunity to join in beach games and crafts. Once again, this multi-generational event will be launched by our Honorary Chair, surf legend Shaun Tomson, leading all of the paddlers into the water.
Paddle Out for SBMM helps provide vital general operating funds for SBMM’s exhibits and experiential education programs such as Marine Science, Ocean Connections, Maritime on the Move, and Love Letters to the Sea – all of which encourage the protection and preservation of our fragile, limited natural resources for generations to come. Public support underwrites this unique and important event and fosters SBMM’s work to educate and connect the community with the past, present, and future of the Channel.
