Cairns Wins Championship at Annual Paddleboard Race

Santa Barbaran Jane Cairns successfully defended her title as the women’s champion of the annual Jay Moriarty Memorial Paddleboard Race in Santa Cruz. The grueling race – now in its sixth year – pits paddlers against 12 miles of open ocean. Facing a record-setting field of female competitors, Cairns – aided by atypically sunny skies and calm seas – navigated the course in a time of 2:29:53, nearly five minutes faster than second-place finisher and Santa Cruz resident Savannah Shaughnessy.
