Pete Westwick - The Friendship Paddle 2019

Supporting Mike Kelley Learn More

Mike Kelley is one of my oldest and best friends and is now battling mesothelioma. The Friendship Paddle will raise funds but more importantly show Mike and his family that their community is behind them. Please help them by supporting the Paddle!


The Friendship Paddle

On September 15th over 150 paddlers will start at sunrise in Forney's Cove on Santa Cruz Island and paddle the Santa Barbara Channel and land on the beach in front of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in support of Mike Kelley and his family.
