Discussion Forum

Our local group of catamaran sailors launch at the Ventura Harbor boat ramp at 1300 Anchors Way, Ventura, CA. Boats in our group include three Prindle 19s, two Prindle 18-2s, a Nacra 6.0, two Dart 18s, two A-Cats, and a Weta Triamaran. . Besides the occasional day sail, we also participate in Weds night racing during the spring and summer seasons, as well as the island seriers races including Frenchies Rum Run, the Milt Ingram Trophy Race, and the Tri-Point Ocean Race. We are always looking for new people to join our group. If you are new to catamarans and need help with your boat, join our discussion forum as we are more than willing to assist online, in person, and on the water.
