Where the sea meets the shore…

shore meets the sea

Santa Barbara Sailing Center is the only sailing-oriented rental, charter, and bareboat facility in Santa Barbara. Conveniently floating right in the harbor, the Sailing Center has a full roster of licensed instructors, captains, and crew. The beauty, challenge, and adventure of the coastline is just a cast-off away.

For owner Skip Abed—who began sailing at age 4—this profession is a true passion play. After working for the company for 8 years, he purchased Santa Barbara Sailing Center in April 2000. Ever since, he and his crew have been sharing the sailing love and lifestyle with guests of all ages and levels of experience.
