Mega philanthropists Roger and Sarah Chrisman hosted a fun fête for supporters and friends on the 110 ft. gaff rigged schooner Mystic Whaler, which is now run by the Central Coast Ocean Adventures Foundation based in Oxnard, as an education vessel for young people aged 10 to 18 years.

The tony Montecito twosome bought the 1967 vessel, which has 3,000 square feet of sail, and moved it to California after its 25 years of operating on the East Coast under the captaincy of Christine Healy.

It will be in the harbor, just a tiara’s toss from the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, for two weeks.

Since the nonprofit started, more than 2,200 students have visited or sailed on it since 2022.

Among those quaffing mimosas and scoffing the ample hors d’oeuvres were Congressman Salud Carbajal, Mayor Randy Rowse, Mercedes Millington, Bob Duncan, Leanne Schlinger, Bob and Sandy Urquhart, Bud and Sigrid Toye, and John and
Deneen Demourkas
