OC Sailing & Events Center
In the mid 1970’s, a group of dedicated individuals and organizations began petitioning the Orange County board of supervisors to build a multi-use public boating facility utilizing State Tideland funds. A consortium was formed to advise the County regarding construction details and operational issues. Ten years later the Dana Point Youth & Group Facility opened on Columbus Day, 1985. The Facility name change in January, 2008, more accurately reflect's the Center's Mission:
"To provide sailing and water based experiences to our community while also hosting social and business events at our harbor location."
Westwind opened in 1987 to work in cooperation with OCSEC and to provide safe boating and sailing education for the general public.
