The Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles

Irving Johnson Exy Johnson

Designated the "Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles" at their launch in 2002, these 110-foot wooden vessels are charged with giving tens of thousands of young people the opportunity to experience self-discovery, life changing adventure and education found only on a tall ship at sea.

Built to last 100 years, the state-of-the-art brigantine design is based on TopSail founder Jim Gladson's decades of experience with adolescent education and youth sail training programs, years of valuable experience gained from the Institute's first vessel, Swift of Ipswich, and discussions with sail training experts throughout the world.

Purpose-built by the Institute to meet or exceed all U.S. Coast Guard requirements, the brigantines are named in honor of the late Captain Irving and Electa "Exy" Johnson, character-building sail training pioneers and seven-time circumnavigators with youth crew aboard their sailing vessel YANKEE.    

    

 

 

 

 

 

Los Angeles Maritime Institute (LAMI) uses educational experiences at sea to provide youth with real-life challenges that develop knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to live healthy, productive lives. 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!
