The 2023 Boat to Beach Swim will take place Thursday, August 31st. Registration is $60.
You must sign-up in person at Reef and Run, and you must have swum at least three 1mile/1k swims this season in order to register. This is important for safety reasons and Race Director Jane will be checking results. Any swimmers trying to cheat the system will not be allowed on future boat swims.
For registered swimmers, please read ALL of the VERY IMPORTANT information below. If you are not doing the boat swim, but would like to join the after party, please see the info at the bottom of this announcement for details. Thank you!!
Boat to Beach Swim Check-In
Check-in is at Santa Barbara Landing (Formerly Sea Landing) and starts at 4:45 p.m. We will be on the Condor Express. The boat will leave promptly at 5:40 p.m. If you are late, you will miss the boat and the race. No Alcohol on the boat this year – Safety First.
There has been some behavior in the past that will not be tolerated this year.
**No Alcohol on the boat this year
**No swimming out to the boat to “bandit” the boat swim
Anyone who does either of these things will not be allowed on future boat swims. Spread the word.
Personal Items on the Boat
We will have trash bags to transport MINIMAL clothing and personal items from the boat to East Beach. Please no backpacks or duffel bags. I will not let you board the boat with a big bag. (Think: shorts, flip-flops, t-shirt in a grocery bag).
The trash bags will not be delivered to the beach until AFTER the race is completed, so do not put any important items in the bags (like keys you need to get into your car or cell phones). We will not be responsible for any important items that you bring aboard the Condor. You can drop off all your items that you need for the after party at East Beach before the swim. We will have monitors at the beach while we are swimming…
Post-Race Check-In at East Beach
The boat will be leaving Santa Barbara Landing, but we WILL NOT be returning there. You will be swimming into East Beach and checking in again, post-swim, at East Beach to get your meal ticket, drink tickets, and swimmer-only raffle.
Transportation to SB Landing ~ Post-Race Clothing
Reef & Run will NOT be providing transportation from East Beach to SB Landing. We suggest you coordinate a carpool with other Boat to Beach participants to leave a car at East Beach and your warm, post-race clothes at the finish site. You can drop off post-race bags at East Beach before the event.
Friends, Family and Supporters Welcome at Post-Race Party
The post-race party and Buena Onda food is open to all friends, family and R&R supporters. Stop by the Reef & Run post-race check-in table and purchase a party ticket for $25 which includes food plate and two beer/hot cocoa tickets. Entertainment provided by Budunkafunk.
