HIGH SCHOOL SAILING

Since the fall of 2019, we have hosted sailors from Southern High School in the fall and spring sailing seasons to compete against other schools in the area. In their first season, the team of five sailors won their first regatta and finished 4th out of 18 qualified teams at their regional event! Since then, the team has more than doubled in size.

This fall, we are excited to annouce that the South River HS Seahawks will be joining our family. We are looking forward to the continued growth  and success of both teams.

These teams join the 5000 sailors who compete in high school sailing across the United States. They will mainly compete against schools in Maryland and DC as a part of the Maryland Inter-Scholastic Sailing Association (MDISA) league, a subset of the Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Assocaition (MASSA) league. At MDISA events, we will be competing at unique venues all over the area. At MASSA events, sailors from Virginia to New York compete to advance to higher level events on the path to High School Nationals.

We do not host "team tryouts" as we believe every kid should get the opportunity to join the team... We focus on making the best effort to get everyone out on the water, competing, and having fun; we will grow as needed to make sure everyone who wants to sail can. Through a sense of community and belonging developed through the sport and team bonding, we also ensure everyone feels comfortable to be on our teams.

WE'VE EXPANDED OUR REACH & CAPACITY!

We are actively growing our program to make high school sailing more inclusive for the Southern Anne Arundel and Northern Calvert County regions! This includes students from the Crofton High School, and Northern High School districts (grades 8-12) and others...

We will help you start your school's team! No minimum number of students required to compete, although teams will compete under the "WRSC Team" name until they have grown beyond 4 students.
