The best So Cal “distance” race is the 80 mile jaunt from Santa Barbara to King Harbor, held at the end of July. Challenging course, sometimes breezy, good boats all make for a really fun event.
We won it class and overall last year on A4, and we were looking forward to trying to repeat, so we are bummed to say that it has been cancelled for 2020. Not unexpected, but it sucks nonetheless.
