We have a variety of Learn to Sail programs for sailors of all ages and skill levels. Our instructors are US Sailing Certified and our river is among the safest on the Chesapeake Bay to learn on, offering all types of conditions with a low amount of traffic. The sessions are engaging and are known for instilling the love of sailing! We offer three main categories of education; our Junior Program, Adult Learn to Sail, and Family/Group Lessons! Check them out below!



AGES 4.5-18

From its first junior program in 1953, WRSC has a long and successful history with young sailors - giving some of the best sailors in the country their start. Our instructors instill not only a respect for the water, but also teach the techniques and skills required to sustain a life-long passion for the sport while always keeping at the forefront the most important element of teaching young children – FUN!

Since 1956



AGES 18+

We offer a multitude of adult sailing classes ranging from beginner to advance levels and taught in Albacores and Flying Scots. We use small sailboats as they provide immediate feedback and experience with all aspects of sailing. Our adult courses are available for ages 18 and up. Our objective is to give you as much on the water time as possible focusing on hands-on learning.

Since 2009



AGES 12+

Got a whole family that wants to learn to sail? We got you covered. Depending on the number of people in the sessions, we can sail your family in our Flying Scots or Albacores. The sessions are just between your family and one of our sailing instructions.

Since 2019
