This month’s sunset sail will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019 from 5:00pm-7:30pm.

Sail on a traditionally rigged tall ship from a bygone era, explore the largest wilderness on the planet (the ocean), and sit ringside in the busiest port in the Americas.  Or get adventurous and become part of the crew.

All proceeds from community sailing events help support our year-round educational programs for under-served youth throughout Southern California aboard the twin brigantines, Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson – the Official Tall Ships of Los Angeles.
