Overview: We sail 19’ Flying Scots out of Belle Haven Marina on the Potomac River in Alexandria.

There are six classes, including four on the water. You will learn how to jibe, tack, adjust the sails for changing winds, dock, and perform man-overboard drills.

Graduates will qualify to take out centerboard boats in sheltered water. Students who successfully complete the course and test will receive American Sailing Association certification.

Sailors who have taken our class before are welcome to attend the classroom sessions at no cost.

[Note: This is NOT the marina next to National Airport.] Turn off the Pkwy at the Belle Haven Marina sign and follow the road until you see the boats and water.
