    The Leeway Sailing and Aquatics Center has had "the wind at it's back" throughout its long history. Founded in 1929 to teach local youth the basics of sailing, the Leeway Sailing and Aquatics Center is regarded as one of the premier municipal instructional sailing programs in the country. The Center's mission is to provide a fun, safe aquatic experience, and to teach good sportsmanship and water safety. Along with quality sailing instruction, board sailing, kayaking, wind surfing and canoeing are also taught.


    A Long Beach sailing program on the beach of Alamitos Bay began in 1929. It became affiliated with the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club (ABYC) not long after it founding, and many Leeway Sailing Center (Leeway) members were also junior members of the ABYC. More...
