About US

Join SCOW today!

The Sailing Club of Washington welcomes people who have never sailed, "old salts" who've sailed for years, and those who just enjoy socializing with sailors.

We're a 100% volunteer-run organization. Our members collectively own our keelboat cruisers and the Flying Scot centerboard boats in our fleet. We keep our boats at Washington Sailing Marina on Daingerfield Island, just off the George Washington Parkway, south of Reagan National Airport.

Our Members pay annual dues to participate in member-only events such as Training, Racing, River Excursions and Raft-Ups.  Members pay an additional fee to become Skipper certified. All members who are certified SCOW skippers have access to our boat reservation system.

Curious?  Come join us at one of our open-to-the-public Social Sails each Thursday from April through September (6:00 pm - sundown).  You can join a crew aboard one of our Flying Scots for a 20-minute sail. It's a great way to check us out and meet members, skippers, curious newcomers, sailing instructors, and members of our Board of Directors as well. 

But why wait?  Join now!
