Founded in 1872, Santa Barbara Yacht Club is the second-oldest Yacht Club on the west coast of North America | Image - Santa Barbara Yacht Club
Affectionately dubbed “beer can races” by yachting insiders, weeknight races like Wet Wednesdays are booming all up and down the West Coast, and nowhere more so than in Santa Barbara, where the mix of serious racing and casual socializing brings out the fun in a sport that can otherwise be forbiddingly competitive. The unique venue—provided courtesy of the yacht club’s observation deck and the nearby Channel Islands—renders this picturesque setting ideal for spectators. At most yacht clubs, you have to go out on the water to really see the action; here it’s as easy as climbing a flight of stairs. Spectators are so close that the race committee—ordinarily holding down one end of the starting line in a launch—can run the entire event from the second-floor deck.
