Sailing is not exclusive to racing or cruising, which is why our love of sailing is fully inclusive! In a new initiative for our 90th year, we are making clear that we are a club for all types of sailing. This initiative is intended to bridge the cap between the racers and cruisers at our club and to create a transition period for graduates of our Learn to Sail Program.
We’re famous for racing and cruising, but West River Sailing Club is also the perfect place to enjoy recreational sailing. It’s all about having fun on the water with families and friends, connecting with nature, and being part of a spirited community on the Chesapeake Bay, one of the world’s top sailing destinations.
THERE'S LOT MORE TO COME
We offer sailing lessons for beginning as well as experienced adults and kids. Occasional clinics will cover tips on nautical skills from knot-tying to navigating. As part of our innovative mentorship service, experienced sailors will be assigned to novices looking to gain confidence at the helm. Take part in a guided sailing excursion or organize your own adventures. The action is centered at our Galesville clubhouse. If you have a sailboat, great. Check out our boat-parking policies. If not, join our shared boat program.
