Cruising


The Club offers a very active and fun-filled cruising schedule to its members. Our cruising fleet enjoys the exciting and occasionally challenging mission of navigating the waters off our coast at the beautiful Channel Islands. SBYC Cruisers enjoy a variety of trips to anchorages at the islands of Santa Cruz, Catalina, and occasionally San Miguel. Organized activities include hiking, exploring ashore, contests, and potluck parties on one of the boats or shore side, as well as informal
gatherings.  Contact the club for more information. 

This year, your fleet captain is encouraging everyone to apply to the Santa Cruz Island Nature Conservancy for landing permits.  Landing permits are required for hiking on most of Santa Cruz Island, and the $70 permit supports the Nature Conservancy's invaluable work to preserve and protect Santa Cruz Island as a pristine and natural habitat that we are privileged to enjoy.  On the right, there are several useful links, including the calendar in Excel, suitable for printing.
