Once envisioned solely as a training site to help sailors fulfill their Olympic dreams, the United States Sailing Center at Long Beach has developed into a true center of training for sailors of every ability and from all parts of our community. From developmental clinics and hosting of world-class regattas to coaching a number of area high schools and the USC collegiate sailing team, the Sailing Center offers sailors the skills necessary for success in the sport. Still, the Sailing Center does much more than just train sailors.
Programs include Youth At-Risk activities through local help groups, Learn-to-Sail classes for all ages and disabled sailing opportunities through the Sailing Center’s own Disabled Sailing Association. Additionally the Sailing Center’s role in helping with the administration of the sport is certainly leaving its mark. Key involvement with the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference, Southern California Youth Yacht Racing Association, Southern California Yachting Association, Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association and numerous national organizations including the United States Sailing Association are helping to improve, develop and grow the sport of sailing.
Located on the Alamitos Bay Peninsula in Long Beach, the Sailing Center offers a wide range of facilities and boats for its programs. For information on our current programs please contact us at (562) 433-7939, or send an email to Michael Segerblom, Executive Director
