Sips & Ships

A Wine Tasting and Yacht Tour Benefit for the Santa Barbara Sea Shell Association

Our annual wine tasting & yacht tour event, Sips & Ships, will be held this year on October 7, 2023 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Marina 1 in the Santa Barbara Harbor.

Join us for this iconic Santa Barbara event.

Guests will have the unique opportunity to mingle with boat owners and engage with local winemakers while enjoying an evening at the Santa Barbara Harbor. Join us to be treated to local wines and beers, paired with hors d’oeuvres and desserts, while gaining special access to featured yachts. You will also have the opportunity to bid on donations from local businesses at our silent auction.

The annual wine tasting event is the only fundraiser of the Santa Barbara Sea Shell Association. Funds raised in this adults-only event help ensure we can maintain our fleet and provide sailing education for youth at an affordable price for all families. This year, we are also raising funds to renovate our boat storage condos.

General Admission: $90 per person

Tickets are on sale now.
