It's a cool day with a strong breeze. Dozens of boats have gathered just off Santa Barbara* for the annual Santa Barbara to King Harbor sailboat races.
Boats of all sizes, from the smaller personal boats to the huge professional racing "sleds".
For some it's a fast race down the coast, while for others it's an overnight adventure with a beautiful oceanic view of the stars.
*Apologies to anyone who might have encountered "Sanata Barabara" as the name of this beautiful coastal haven on my original post Monday morning. All I can blame is the early hour I post most of these pictures.
And apologies to Santa Barbara in general. Please let me back in...
