The DSC is booking Intro classes for this season.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, courses are limited to 2 students with an instructor. Classes must be full to run. 

Introduction to Sailing - 12 Hr. Course

Sailing in the Inner Harbor


Embark on a voyage for fun! Sailing will not only take you places but it will expand your horizons!

This course is the perfect primer or refresher for most students. In addition to top-notch instruction, students receive US Sailing's Basic Keelboat Student book and a 50+ page comprehensive student packet designed specifically for our keelboat program at The DSC. Our two-day courses are listed as "12 hours" but each course runs two days, from 9AM to 5PM.

Experienced instructors teach the fundamentals of water safety, rigging a boat, wind direction, sail theory, points of sail, and even how to rescue a person if they fall overboard. Upon successful completion of this course, students will feel comfortable on a boat and have the skills to crew on a 23-foot boat with an experienced skipper.
