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.
Sailing Lessons: Our talented SCWDC sailing instructors are prepared to teach you the ins and outs of sailing a boat. Take a class and attend our Chesapeake or Potomac sails to practice and fine tune your skills.
