Whitewater to Seawater
We are planning to relocate from DC to the West Coast (Lake Tahoe) and would love to keep a 40 footer in the Santa Barbara area to sail the Channel Islands. In my initial research, it sounds as if Santa Barbara is the place to be but there is a waiting list for slips at the marina. Next would be either Oxnard or Ventura. Is any of the two better than the other as far as marina convenience and surroundings? We would be spending periods of two weeks on the boat here and there and would enjoy walking/biking to town, jog on the beach/shore line....
