Ventura Sailing Club is located in Ventura, California. With two public harbors and close proximity to the Northern Channel Islands, this area is often referred to as the “Gateway” to the Channel Islands. The Santa Barbara Channel is also well known for its challenging and diverse sailing conditions; the area has even been used as a training ground for America’s Cup competitors. 

The Ventura Sailing Club was founded in 1975 with the objective to provide planning and leadership for a recreational program of boating activities centered in Ventura County, California. In its current incarnation, the VSC has focused on the utilization of the Channel Islands National Park and the Santa Barbara Channel as excellent grounds for staging sailboat races, as well as a premier destination for all cruising activities, for the benefit of the local boating community.
