There are several hotels on Cabrillo Blvd.within walking distance of the regatta site. Early reservations are usually necessary. More affordable options are also available in Santa Barbara or Goleta within a 15 minute drive. SBYC recommends that hotel reservations be made as far in advance as possible. Visit: http://www.santabarbaraca.com/hotels-and-hideaways/ for a list of area hotels.
Due to short supply of parking in the SBYC club lot, competitor vehicles will only be allowed in the SBYC lot for short periods of time to unhitch and hitch boat trailers. However, There is a public parking lot on the north side of the harbor as shown in ‘Attachment B – SB Harbor Map’ . All day parking costs $12 per vehicle. For those who are willing to walk, there is limited free parking in the Pershing Park parking lot (on the west side of Castillo Street, just north of the Pershing Park baseball diamonds).
Below is a map of local services in Santa Barbara. Additionally, there are numerous day trips, activities, wine tasting, and shopping locally that can be found simply by visiting http://www.santabarbaraca.com/things-to-do/.
