Sailing opportunities are available from May through October. Come out with us while we sail across the Chesapeake Bay & Potomac River. All levels of experience are welcome, including first-timers.
Our Sailing events include boats and skippers, plus a chance to learn or improve your sailing skills. We also offer sailing lessons and, occasionally, we'll organize sailing trips to popular destinations throughout the seven seas.
Potomac Sails: We sail 19-ft Flying Scots from the Belle Haven Marina for 2 hours on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings, see the calendar and filter for Sailing. These are excellent opportunities to learn the fundamentals of sailing while having fun.
Chesapeake Bay Sails: Come out with our weekend "salts" on the Chesapeake Bay for full or half-day sails on 34-40 foot boats. We provide experienced skippers plus a chance to pick up sailing pointers and some hands-on experience! We also offer occasional overnight weekend sails.
Adventure Sailing: SCWDC's next sailing adventure will be a "Regatta to the beautiful British Virgin Islands (BVI). We will be chartering luxury 48' catamaran and mono-hull yachts and exploring the many charms of these island paradises. Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, we will be re-scheduling this trip for a future date. Stay tuned!
