Welcome to Santa Barbara Sailing Club


The Santa Barbara Sailing Club is located in Santa Barbara, California, approximately 100 miles north of Los Angeles. Our mild Mediterranean climate allows us to sail year-round. 

Santa Barbara Sailing Club (SBSC) was established in 1959 to promote primarily one-design class sailboat racing in the Santa Barbara harbor area. Since then our activities have expanded to include PHRF race categories and cruising activities. Affordable access to the sport of sailboat racing has been a primary objective of the SBSC.

SBSC is a member of the ISAF, US Sailing, the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA), and the Association of Santa Barbara Channel Yacht Clubs (ASBCYC). We have an active inter-club racing program to accommodate all levels of racing skills and inclinations. Besides being represented at various class regattas and ocean races, SBSC stages annual regattas and is co-sponsor with the Pierpont Bay Yacht Club of the Hardway Race (Santa Barbara to Ventura around Santa Cruz Island).
