Sea Trek Regatta & All-New ETC Challenge

THE 38TH ANNUAL SEA TREK REGATTA & All-New ETC CHALLENGE

Saturday, October 24
Special Times Require Extra Special Events!

 

Every October, for 38 years, Sea Trek has sponsored the largest Paddling Regatta on the West Coast. Since the beginning, Sea Trek’s Regatta has been a Benefit for Environmental Traveling Companions’ Scholarship Fund, sponsoring people of all abilities and under-resourced youth to have educational and transformational adventures in the great outdoors!

This year, due to COVID-19, we wanted to find opportunities for our whole community to participate, so we created 3 fun ways for everyone to get involved!
