Gaviota State Park
Gaviota State Park is a state park of California, USA. It is located in southern Santa Barbara County, California, about 33 miles (53 km) west of the city of Santa Barbara. It extends from the Pacific coast to the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and is adjacent to Los Padres National Forest.
The Gaviota State Park is the start of the Nighttrain228, the Night Train Swimmers's attempt to set the world record for the longest non-stop ocean relay swim in history. The Night Train Swimmers will attempt a 228-mile (367 km) swim down the California coast from Point Conception (Gaviota State Park) to Coronado (near the San Diego Yacht Club) beginning on 22 August 2013. Under the direction of captain Vito Bialla, Phil Cutti, David Holscher, Zach Jirkovsky, Luane Rowe, Blair Cannon, and Grace van der Byl, with Walter Bean Scott as the alternate swimmer, will rotate in one-hour swim legs.
