The annual Pier-to-Point fundraiser for the North Coast Ocean Rescue Team starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, at San Simeon Pier and ends six miles south at Leffingwell Landing. Registration starts at 8 a.m.
In the event, participants can paddle on kayaks, paddleboards, stand-up paddleboards and outrigger canoes.
Each participant’s $40 donation helps support NCOR, and goes toward buying equipment for the volunteer ocean-water rescue team.
The event concludes with a barbecue lunch and handing out of T-shirts. Transportation is provided back to participants’ vehicles, and volunteer security personnel will guard the equipment until paddlers return to pick it up.
NCOR is celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year. The all-volunteer, Cambria-based ocean/water rescue team operates under the direction of the Cambria Fire Department. NCOR is funded by community donations and the Cambria Community Services District.
