Swift of Ipswich                                  

             The TopSail Youth Program's original vessel, Swift of Ipswich, is a

representation of a Revolutionary War privateer.

             She is a 70-foot wooden topsail schooner designed by Howard Chappelle and

built in 1938 by William Robinson.


                                                                         
                                       
             The Swift of Ipswich was once the personal yacht of actor James Cagney and had been a well-known floating landmark in California for over 60 years.
Many who know her say her finest hours have been those spent serving youth.

              About two thirds the size of one of our bigantines, "Swift" is especially well-suited for working with younger youth.

Our beloved Swift will be a sight to behold when she returns to the Port of Los Angeles. You can follow the excellent photo record of her reconstruction being created by Jerry Soto.

The Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) serves to empower youth to discover their greater potential through extraordinary at-sea experiences. We envision a thriving community where every child can look to the future with confidence.

The TopSail Youth Program takes place aboard the twin brigantines, Exy Johnson and Irving Johnson, the Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles.

Our thanks to the Port of Los Angeles for supporting the TopSail Youth Program for more than a decade!
