We are restarting our Beach Cleanup Days. This cleanup is in honor of Don Hurley. Don served on the Board of Directors for many years and led the club`s community outreach program. He organized countless beach cleanups and is dearly missed.

To attend this cleanup, meet downstairs at the club around 1:30 on Sunday. We`ll all walk over to the beach after grabbing buckets, gloves and grabbers from the club. Afterwards, there will be free Sunday Munchies in the club.

Those of us fortunate enough to spend time on the ocean get to see some truly beautiful and inspiring things. However, not everything we encounter out there sparks joy. After every Mother`s Day, Valentines Day, and New Years, our members find dozens of balloons floating in the channel or washed up on the beaches of the Channel Islands.

Please consider an alternative to balloons this year.

Are you a boater? Are you interested in becoming a boater? Are you curious about what it looks like inside the oldest yacht club in the county? Come check us out!

We are a club of "water people". Some of us are sailors, some of us are power boaters, some of us just enjoy a glass of wine with friends on the balcony while watching the sun go down over the ocean. However you enjoy the ocean, there`s a place for you here.

Memberships are available, affordable, and come with a long list of perks and benefits.

DM this account with questions or call the office.

Mother`s Day is less than a month away. Give her a gift that truly keeps on giving with our VYC cookbook. It is packed full with more than 300 pages of delicious recipes from some of our very own VYC members.

And be sure to get her a beautiful VYC history book to read while she`s baking some famous Rival Cookies, or to have on her coffee table while she`s entertaining guests with some Addictive Avocado Dip, Crab Linguini, or some Huckleberry Lemon Drop Martinis.

Opening Day among boat clubs is the annual celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of the boating season. The tradition is believed to have begun in the rich maritime history of the eastern seaboard, where winter snow and ice dictated that vessels be pulled out of water and wrapped in boat houses on land until Spring. In addition to yacht club officers making the circuit to visit nearby yacht clubs, opening day is stacked with events including flags being presented by the Color Guard, dock parties, a Youth Sailing at Ventura Yacht Club racing exhibition, a benediction by the club chaplain, various speeches, presentations, and awards. Additionally, all boats in the yacht club marina are dressed with burgees and flags, adding to the festive atmosphere. The tradition of firing a cannon was believed to be a method to “break up the ice” in colder climate harbors. Since we have no ice, beyond what’s floating in our beverages, the cannoneer still fires the cannon as a celebratory signal to officially begin the boating season. If you’re near Ventura Harbor on Saturday, April 1st, you’ll hear the cannon at approximately 9:25am and again at 9:50am. 
Welcome to the Ventura Yacht Club 2023 boating season! #yachtclub#openingday #boating #springtime
