Cast your workaday cares to the wind as you skim across the Potomac Tuesday evenings on extremely stable 19-foot Flying Scots boats. Or, get your weekends off to a "flying" start on alternate Saturday mornings. Learn the difference between a jibe and a jib plus new nautical skills from experienced, laid-back SCWDC skippers. No experience required, but a desire for fun is a must.
We sail from the Belle Haven Marina. The sails last 2 hours, with the fun continuing afterwards (additional cost) for all hungry hands at nearby Primo’s Restaurant (in the back room) where you can meet the crews from the other boats and swap stories of the day or night’s adventure. Reservations are strongly encouraged so the trip leader can plan for skippers and order the number of boats based on the number of people who have signed up. To reserve your space for Tuesday night, please call the leader by Sunday. To reserve for Saturday, please call by Wednesday.
Tuesdays: From May through Labor Day we sail from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. After Labor Day, sails begin and end earlier due to earlier sunsets. Specific times are listed below for each event. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Price is $13 members; $18 guests.
Saturdays: We sail from 10:00 AM to Noon every other Saturday from May through October. Please arrive by 9:45. Price is $16 members; $21 guests.
We are now under full sail on the Potomac. Scroll below for the specific events.
