Biltmore Cup

We invite SBYC and Coral Casino members and their guests to take part in the Biltmore Cup Paddle Race & Rally.  The event is run in human powered watercraft (such as SUP, kayak, prone paddleboard, outrigger canoe, surfski, etc).  Competitors can race for first to finish or just do a rally and predict your own finish time, which is at your own speed.  

  • Members and guests of members of the Coral Casino and Santa Barbara Yacht Club are invited to participate. 
  • All types of human-powered watercraft may be used (Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, surfboards, etc). 
  • 'Race Division' is a first to finish race. 
  • 'Rally Division' is a predicted finish time.
  • Awards will be presented to competitors based on number of sign ups. 

*Rental boards and kayaks are available, through local harbor vendors.  Each competitor wishing to rent should contact vendors on their own to secure a rental:
