Tired of golf outings? Experience a great new view of Baltimore while under sail!
The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) offers groups the opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy a sailing experience together. The DSC will provide the boats, a coach for every boat, and life jackets - just show up dressed for a day outdoors, and we will handle the rest! We can accommodate groups of up to 50 participants.
We will work with you to plan an event of your desired timeframe, and do our best to accommodate your preferred date. We have the most availability for groups (and often the best sailing weather!) during the "shoulder seasons" of April through early June and late August through October.
Our most popular option is a 4-hour agenda, structured as follows:
Kick-off (30 minutes): Our instructors will provide an orientation, discuss safety basics, and deliver a brief chalk talk on sailing fundamentals.
Sailing Lesson (1.5 hours): We'll separate your group into teams of three or four and everyone will be assigned to a boat and sailing coach for small group lessons. Coaches will provide orientations on the boats and get everyone out on the water to learn sail theory, points of sail, sail trim, boating safety and rules of the road.
Friendly Competition (1.5 hours): The event will culminate with a friendly competition so the sailors can put their new skills to the test! You can choose between a series of friendly races or an on-the-water scavenger hunt. Either way, the teams will have to work together to get the best performance out of their boats, solve problems, and most importantly HAVE FUN together.
Wrap-Up (30 minutes): Sailors will proceed back to the docks and disembark. Coaches will announce winners of the competition, and we will finish up with a debriefing on all those great lessons learned.
Our rate for a 4-hour event as detailed above is $250 per person. That includes the boats, coaches, a life jacket for every participant, and jugs of cold water. If you're interested in a different structure, we'll work with you on customized pricing.
An approximate headcount and 50% deposit are required to reserve the date. The balance and final headcount are due 7 days prior to the event.
If your group would like to have a party under the Baltimore Museum of Industry pavilion as part of your event, the rental of that space and is coordinated through the BMI. See here for more details on that space.
