Welcome to DC Sail!

 ______________________________________     

DC Sail is the community sailing program of the National Maritime Heritage Foundation. 

Our mission is to promote and sustain affordable educational, recreational and competitive sailing programs for all ages in a fun and safe environment. DC Sail empowers its participants to develop self-respect and sportsmanship, foster teamwork, and cultivate sailing skills and an appreciation for maritime-related activities. In addition, DC Sail enhances the DC community by using sailing to bolster community spirit and volunteerism.

Our active programs, located in Southwest Washington, D.C., are re-connecting people of the metropolitan region to the water. Sailing opportunities are available for adults and youth aboard small boats as well as our 65-foot schooner, American Spirit. Proceeds from our programs go toward offering under-served youth the opportunity to learn to sail.
