About the SBYC Charity REgatta
The Charity Regatta is part of a national movement, but has become a signature event in Santa Barbara since its inception in 2005 with SBYC steering the wheel. Like the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, Visiting Nurse & Hospice care has a deeply rooted history in the Santa Barbara community, and SBYC is proud to be supporting VNHC for the 12th year running. Together, the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care have raised over $1 million to support VNHC’s mission to provide compassionate and trusted care to all – including those unable to pay.
