Fall light on island anchorages just off the coast of Ventura. Aren’t we lucky to have this boating paradise in our neighborhood? Good wishes for splendid, safe, memorable island boating adventures. #boating #santacruzisland #anchorage #sailing #boatlife #islandtime #pacificocean #yachtclub #cruising #onthewater #ventura #prisonersharbor @venturayachtclub ...

Ventura Yacht Club members initiate Clean Up days on the water in Ventura Harbor, and on the beaches. ♻️ (pictured, left to right) VYC Vice Commodore Dave Boatner, Rear Commodore Garret Baum and Commodore Miguel Valdes cleaned trash from the water in the harbor this week. 🚮 Coastal breezes carry trash to the harbor, where it festers and affects sea life and marina water quality. Ventura Yacht Club members scoop trash from the water, and pick up wind-blown and left-behind trash with teams of volunteers walking 5 gallon buckets on the beach regularly every season. A 40 minute gesture of clean-up accumulates tons of removed waste pulled from Ventura Harbor and our beaches when we work collectively, and repeatedly. Camaraderie in a yacht club offers good community, and opportunity to participate in things that matter to us, with friends. 🤝 We enjoy common interests in boating, coastal living and helping to care for this beautiful place we call home. We’re happy to do our part. #ventura #venturaharbor #venturayachtclub #marinacleanup #cleanocean #cityofventura #funwork #volunteeringmatters #communityservice #mothernatured #ourtownourteam #coastalliving #boatlife #sailors #goodtogo #makeithappen #recycledplastic #watersports #yachtclub ...

A glimpse of the emerald green water and the clear, sandy bottom at a Catalina anchorage enjoyed by 28 boats from @venturayachtclub a few weeks ago. Cruising with friends, enjoying island time and appreciating the wonders of Mother Nature is good for what ails you. #boatlife #catalinaisland #emeraldbay #venturayachtclub #onthewater #oceanvideo #dinghyride #islandtime🌴 #sailing #boating #yachtclub #cruisingwithfriends ...

Ventura Yacht Club cruise to Emerald Bay and #corsaircove (thank you, @corsairyc 💗) on #catalinaisland was a slice of heaven. It was good to be outdoors, great to spent time with friends and family, in nature, on the water, on the island, on boats. #planforjoy #getoutsideandplay #gatheryourfriends #getonaboat #goswimming #islandtime #smores #sundowners #boatlife #yachtclub #pacificocean #fellowship #onthewater #boatfriends @venturayachtclub ...

Sailing camp at Ventura Yacht Club gathers kids from 8-18 for weeklong sailing classes taught by certified instructors. Each participant assembles an Opti sailboat first thing in the morning, with their safety gear on, in sunscreen and shades, and they get out in the water to sail. They also compete in sailing-terminology lawn games, sail to a beach in the keys for lunch, and work together in teams. It’s an excellent program that many ask to repeat the following week, and the week after that. You don’t have to be a member of the club to sign up. C’mon on over, and we’ll teach you how to sail. #sailingcamp #venturacounty #cityofventura #summercamp #kidscamp #sailingschool #learntosail #howtosail #makenewfriends #getoutdoors #jrsailing #summerfun2021 #venturaharbor #ventura @venturayachtclub ...

Pretty soon, Ventura Yacht Club friends will meander to Emerald Bay, on Catalina Island. Boats will bob on shimmery water, families will scoot about in dinghies, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards, dogs will be taken for walks on the beach, scuba masks, bathing suits and beach towels will flutter from rails and lifelines, while people read frivolous novels and sip frosty beverages from their boat decks. In the evenings, we will grill delicious things on the beach, share wine and roast marshmallows together. It’ll be island club life, in boats, on the water, together. And we can’t wait. #boatcamping #catalinaisland #yachtclub #sailingclub #boatclub #cruisinglife #letsgather #togethertime #community #fellowship #islandtime🌴 #sailboats #powerboats #familytime #⛵️ #🚤 #🛶 #🏝 #venturacounty @venturayachtclub ...

Jewel colors of Ventura, painted across the sky, mirrored in the harbor, at the end of a pretty day. Breathe the salty air. This is the perfect time for sundowners with friends at Ventura Yacht Club. #venturaharbor #venturayachtclub #guestdock #marinasunset #venturacoast #pacificcoast #californialandscape #pinkskies #onthewater #sundowners #timewithfriends #venturacounty #mothernature #coastalliving #gettothewater #saltair #breathedeep #viewfromthebar @venturayachtclub ...

Here is a little clip of calm serenity from the Channel Islands to finish your week. Not far from shore. Preserved and pristine. Very loved. Get there by boat. Go with friends. Breathe deeply, look closely, feed your wonder. @venturayachtclub #boatinglife #anacapaisland #channelislandsnationalpark #oceanmagic #islandlife #venturacounty #videooftheday #boatclub #yachtclub #getoutdoors #haveanadventure #bringyourfriends #joinasocialclub #goboating ...

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does. #margaretatwoodquote #oceanlife #boatlife #islandhopping #santabarbarachannel #channelislandsnationalpark #boatingseason #outdooradventures #viewfromaboat #pacificocean #belikewater #perserverance #staythecourse #yachtclub @venturayachtclub ...

It’s a sunny, bright Saturday in Ventura. Kayaking in the marina and paddling through the keys is social distancing, right?

Hiking the pristine beauty of Santa Cruz Island on a sunny day will leave mother nature’s scents, sounds and beauty with you for weeks. The extra prize to this experience: you get there by boat. Look at the islands from the shore. Visit them in a boat. Revel in the wonder of this place. #boatlife #venturacounty #channelislandsnationalpark #islandpackers #boating #sailing #santacruzisland #outdooradventures #coastalliving #beachtown #islandview #pacificlife #welivehere #ventura #islandhiking #oceanview @venturayachtclub ...

#quote I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came. #johnfkennedy #sailing #ocean #boating #sailors #gettothesea #beachtown #ventura #venturacup #racing #sailboats #pacificcoast #oceansailing #watersports #getoutdoors #findfriendswithboats #saltwater #onewiththeocean @venturayachtclub ...

A peaceful little pan across a bit of island, some Pacific Ocean, a swatch of sky and graceful avian traffic. Deep breathe.
