Sail, Kayak and Paddleboard


The City of Ventura’s Leo Robbins Community Sailing Center is a national award-winning facility that has been introducing and educating people to the joys of watersports for the past 45 years. The center is operated and maintained by the City of Ventura Parks Recreation & Community Partnerships department with additional funding and support from the State of California’s Division of Boating and Waterways.

We teach the fundamentals of sailing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding, with safety, education, and fun at the core of every class, camp, or activity that we offer. If you are looking to start your experience on the water, refresh your knowledge or just improve your skills we have an activity for you and/or your kids.

We invite you to try one of our many wonderful classes and let us show you why we are so passionate about sailing, kayaking, and stand up paddleboarding.
