Kayakers and paddle boarders move out of San Simeon Cove on during the sixth annual Pier-to-Point Fun Paddle and Ocean Race, a fundraiser for the nonprofit volunteer North Coast Ocean Rescue team.

The annual Pier-to-Point Fun Paddle fundraiser for the North Coast Ocean Rescue Team (NCOR) will be Saturday, Sept. 22, starting at San Simeon Pier and ending 6 miles south at Leffingwell Landing.

Check in is at 8 a.m. The open-water race for kayakers, paddle boarders, SUPS (stand-up paddle boarders), surf skiers and outrigger canoeists starts at 9 a.m.

The $45 donation covers race participation, lunch and a commemorative T-shirt. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the Liam Taylor Rescue Scholarship Fund to sponsor training for a person aspiring to become a member of the emergency medical services system. The rest of the proceeds will help support NCOR. Donations are welcome, of course.

Participants in the Pier-to-Point Paddle can be any age (although those 17 years old and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Paddlers can use any human-powered ocean craft.

Sign up in person at Cambria Fire Department, 2850 Burton Drive, or at the pier on race day.
