Our sail from Santa Barbara to Ventura was one of our best. It was only 24 miles and with 10-15 knots of wind on our stern, we sailed all the way. It was such a nice sail that even Sam came out and joined us in the cockpit!
We were warmly greeted by neighboring boats upon arrival at Ventura West Marina. After registering at the Harbor Office, we were informed about the parade of lights – taken very seriously here – followed by fireworks. We were very lucky as the fireworks were so close to our boat!
We’ve enjoyed our time here in Ventura. Everything from incredibly friendly people at Ventura West Marina, their wonderful guest amenities, and delivery from Topper’s pizza which has the best jalapeño poppers we’ve ever had!
After a Christmas break in Miami, we’re back on the boat and heading to San Diego.
