Outrigger paddlers reach Monterey in 13 hours

Published Tuesday October 25

For about 4 hrs. members of Outrigger Santa Cruz used the silhouette of the stars on the water and the light of a support boat to navigate the choppy waters of the Pacific Ocean early Sun morning.

7 hrs. later, they were nearly blinded by the smiles of the kids from Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services who greeted the weary paddlers when they came ashore on Monterey Municipal Beach.

In all, it took thirteen paddlers, working 6 at a time in one-hour shifts, roughly thirteen hrs. to complete their trek from Half Moon Bay to Monterey, a distance of about ninety miles. The journey was a fundraiser for Jacob’s Heart that generated more than $19,000.
