TopSail Training Program

Irving Johnson ship

On March 28, 2003, the Port of Los Angeles commissioned twin brigantines, Exy and Irving Johnson as the official tallships of the City of Los Angeles. These custom-built 90-foot sail training vessels were constructed within the Port of Los Angeles at Brigantine Boatworks and named in honor of sail-training pioneers Exy and Irving Johnson. The twin brigantines will soon begin full-time service in the award-winning TopSail Youth Program, which uses sail training to provide youth with real-life challenges that develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to live healthy and productive lives.
