The UCSB Sailing team is a student run club with about 40 active members that practice and compete year round. Currently, the UCSB Sailing team is one of the strongest college club sailing teams in the Pacific Coast Conference.
Any undergraduate student at UCSB is welcome to try out for the team. Practices are held throughout the year at the Santa Barbara Harbor in downtown Santa Barbara. Varsity practices are twice a week from 2:30-5:30pm; JV team practices are Fridays from 2:30-5:30; Sailing Club practices (learn to sail) are Saturdays from 12:00-3:00pm.
We welcome any and all skill levels! Come check out the team!

For students who have never sailed before, it is highly recommended that you try to enroll in the university sailing courses through the Exercise and Sports Studies Department (ES1-7A: Beginning Sailing or ES1-7B: Intermediate Sailing). This is not a necessity to participate in the team and we encourage any interested student to come to a team meeting or practice.
