During the first week of July, the club will host the Rawlings California Cup, a qualifier for the National Baseball Congress World Series.

The 77th annual Semana Nautica summer sports festival will include several events on the waterfront, in addition to the Fourth of July 15-Kilometer Run finishing at San Marcos High.

SEMANA NAUTICA 2014

July 2-13 – Semana Nautica (“marine week”) began in the 1930s when Santa Barbara residents organized sporting activities with visiting Navy seamen. It evolved into an annual sports festival open to the public around the July 4 holiday. There is no charge for spectators at any event, but the festival’s primary objective is to encourage participation. Events include age-group and masters swimming, ocean swims, a 15-kilometer run, beach volleyball, tennis, children’s sailing, paddling, and a cardboard kayak race. Information: semananautica.com.
