Hobie Wine & Roses SUP/Paddleboard Race

Major props to Steve Leo for smoothing the way to get an inaugural SUP/paddleboard race added to this year's 10th Annual Wine & Roses Regatta here in Santa Barbara...

Next year's event is already in the planning stage, so please mark the 3rd Saturday in August on your paddle racing calendar now...this is the only event in Santa Barbara where beach camping for an event is allowed...so, if you think that the long drive to Lake Tahoe for a 7 mile race is a burden, consider this 4 mile event next year...it's a cheap date to live like kings and queens on one of Santa Barbara's premiere beaches for a couple of days...not to mention the killer BBQ at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club after the event...proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-Counties

Reyna styling the event t-shirt...we wonder if she wore it to her high school reunion last night...;-)



Try finding a spot this nice to camp on the beach in Santa Barbara...
(hint: there are none...;-) let alone for $7/night...fun racing and camaraderie...



This race features a beach start with a 2 lap upwind/downwind course...
Hobie Alter, Jr. showed up to keep everyone on the line...;-)



Mad dash through the surf...



Scrambling for the lead...



The glassy water is egg-beaten by the frenzy...



Hard fought battle between Rich Schroeder and Dan Gavere...at the end of the 1st lap, Rich hangs onto the lead...



Nick Bobroff is the overall winner...1st place stock paddleboard...



Rich Schroeder held Dan Gavere off for 1st place men's stock SUP...



Rich's training regimen is starting to pay dividends...his GPS numbers are improving at every race...



Dan Gavere powering the 12'6" Starboard Pin into 2nd place...



John Dutton slicing home into 2nd place men's stock paddleboard...



Tom Reilly showing off his "trophy"...;-)
Tom is the organizer for the 17th Annual Ken Harmount Pier to Pier Paddle this September 12th at Avila Beach...it's a benefit for Central Coast Junior Lifeguards...



Rob Graham starting his anniversary off with a "trophy" to share with wifey...;-)



BBQ at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club...



Everybody is a winner at the auction fund raiser...



Here is an image GALLERY capturing a small part of the event...
