18th Annual Santa Barbara Yacht Club Charity Regatta

OPEN WATER FOR CLEAR-SAILING!

Santa Barbara Yacht Club (SBYC) and VNA Health have both been serving the Santa Barbara community for 115 years! This year we celebrate the 18th Annual Charity Regatta on Saturday, September 10, 2022, once again benefiting VNA Health. Each year the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and VNA Health’s community friends come together to do two things at this important event: race, and support VNA Health’s mission of “caring for our community with compassion and integrity.”

If compassion and care were the only currency needed to sustain VNA Health’s services, we would provide them in abundance. However, as a nonprofit we rely on your support to continue delivering exceptional care for our families, friends, and neighbors, who depend on these services to live well at every stage of life.

Over the past 18 years, through the Charity Regatta, SBYC has raised over $2 million to benefit VNA Health. By supporting the 2022 Regatta you are making the gift of subsidized and charitable services and programs to our community.

2022 CELEBRITY SKIPPERS

We are proud to celebrate this year’s Celebrity Skippers – the Mental Health Workers of VNA Health – which include bereavement counselors, medical social workers, and chaplains. Across the agency this group of dedicated individuals comfort and inspire patients and their families every year throughout all stages of life. With their assistance, VNA Health provides charitable community programs and services, such as the Loan Closet, subsidized care at Serenity House, Community Palliative Care, Music Therapy, and Community Bereavement Care, while also providing comprehensive in-home healthcare including skilled nursing, rehabilitative therapies, and hospice care.

MEMORIAL BOAT

Watch our first Memorial Boat Ceremony from 2021.

On September 11, 2021, Santa Barbara Yacht Club (SBYC) offered a unique Remembrance Ceremony as a way for club members and local residents to honor a loved one that has passed, and also to pay tribute to those lost in 9/11.

Although the live event was cancelled, SBYC opened the Charity Regatta with a beautiful tribute from Commodore Andra Escola’s boat, Sul Mare. Music was provided by vocalist David Gonzales and trumpet player James Watson, while flowers were scattered into the open water in memory of loved ones by Taylor Escola.

Special thanks to Peter Trow for filming the ceremony and to Eric Peterson for photography. BIG THANKS to Brad Schaupeter for arranging the race and coordinating the VHF radio broadcast and Facebook Live to share with the crews on the boats and club members on the beach.
