SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The seventh annual Mickey Munoz Mongoose Cup is set for April 9 at Baby Beach (Dana Cove Park) in the Dana Point Harbor. Registration is now open at www.paddleguru.com/races/2016MongooseCup/register.
The event is a fundraiser and includes individual stand-up paddle and prone races and relays for all ages, adaptive paddling instruction for paddlers with disabilities, SUP yoga, skills clinics and the Waterman Expo featuring board demos and the latest waterman technology, and more.
The Mongoose Cup is presented by the Sport of Kings Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps those in the surfboard manufacturing industry afflicted with life threatening and debilitating illnesses due to exposure to harmful chemicals during the surfboard manufacturing process.
The first 50 Sport of Kings event entrants will receive a Mickey Munoz autographed event T-shirt.
Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available.
