About Santana Sailing
Santana Sailing was created in 2003 to fulfill Chief Instructor Marc Hughston’s desire to share the things he knows and loves about sailing and sailing instruction with those who are passionate about sailing. We are located in Long Beach, CA in the Rainbow Harbor Marina at Shoreline Village.
“Long Beach is the ideal Southern California sail-training venue. It’s windier, closer to Catalina, and at a better wind angle than any other SoCal harbor. Plus, we have the advantage of miles of open water for training without the congestion of the kayaks, paddle boards, Duffys and party boats. It’s simply the best place to learn.” Marc Hughston, Chief Instructor.
We operate year ‘round and train locally on Catalina 30 and 34 keelboats, and conduct sail training adventures in a variety of locations on catamarans and monohulls ranging from 45 to 52 feet in length. The best way to advance your sailing skill and experience is to learn with someone who knows what you want to know, has been where you want to go, and can answer questions you didn’t know enough to ask – that’s how we do it.
