The Santa Barbara Harbor Commission, on Jan. 17, recommended a proposed lease agreement with Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation be approved by the local City Council. Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation is looking to sign a five-year lease option with the city of Santa Barbara to occupy a 2,500-square-foot water space at Marina 1. The base rent of the lease, if ultimately approved, would be $778.87 per month.
Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation, found by members of Santa Barbara Yacht Club, was established in 1968. The foundation teaches sailboat racing, sailing and seamanship to young sailors.
The foundation’s fleet consists of four RIBs, one Dauntless Whaler, 11 CFJ sailboats, 24 Optimist dinghies, 10 Optimist sail cubes and eight trailers.
Visit sbysf.org for more information about the foundation.
The Harbor Commission recommendation will move forward to Santa Barbara’s City Council for consideration. Council members can either take the commission’s recommendation and approve the proposed lease agreement or reject it.
