In recent years, there has been a revival in the efforts to publicly open our club in order to get the greater public involved in sailing. We started by greatly expanding our education with the Adult Learn to Sail in 2009. In 2018, our membership saw a need in the community and started the West River Sailing Foundation — with the mission to support all sailing and sailors on the West River and the Chesapeake Bay. In 2019, we welcomed a Galesville/Greater South County Sea Scout Ship into our community. Read more on these efforts below. If you think there's something in our local community that we should be helping with, let us know!
HIGH SCHOOL SAILING
We are proud to be the home of the Southern High School Bulldog's sailing team. We look forward to expanding our capacity and allowing more local area schools to compete in the Inter-Scholastic Sailing Association events.
JUNIOR FLEET FUNDRAISER
We host annually a fundraiser in partnership with the West River Sailing Foundation a fundraiser for junior sailors on the West River! It's a fun night all in support of our youth sailors, buildings grants for programs and sailors to be able to sail who otherwise mightnot be able to afford it.
