THE LEGACY OF THE 1984 OLYMPICS & YACHTING
The legacy of 1984 Olympics and the 1984 Olympic Yachting events were two-fold:
The Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles (AAFLA) is the legacy created for the youth of Southern California by the Games of the XXIII Olympiad held at Los Angeles in the summer of 1984. The innovative management of those Games by the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee (LAOOC) produced a financial surplus of more than $225 million. No other Olympic Games, before or since, has generated a surplus of such size.
USSC-LB's web site is ussailingctr-longbeach.org
The United States Sailing Center-Long Beach provides both the facilities and resources for a variety of activities geared to all aspects of sailing: from training athletes for the next Olympics to introducing members of the community to sailing and offering one of the very few opportunities for disabled persons to experience the joys of sailing as well.
At the end of the 1984 Olympics, key members of the Olympic Yachting staff and OCROC that was it's genesis attempted to take the same energy & expertise and create a year-round sailing center for the objectives stated above. The result = USSC-LB.
