SCWDC - Sailing on the Potomac
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. MAKE SURE YOU SPEAK WITH A TRIP LEADER. Visit, go to Sailing, Potomac Sails, and select the date you wish to register. You will also see the Trip Leader's name and contact number. Cost: $18 non-members $13 SCWDC members We sail on the Potomac every Tuesday evening from 6 – 8 pm (earlier beginning in late August) from Belle Haven Marina ( Belle Haven is located on the George Washington Parkway just south of the Wilson Bridge. [Note: This is NOT the marina next to National Airport.] Turn off the Parkway at the Belle Haven Marina sign and follow the road until you see the boats and water, then park. No experience is necessary. We sail very stable, 19’ Flying Scots, each of which has an experienced skipper and often experienced crew. You can go along for the ride or start or enhance your sailing instruction by participating in boat handling. Our skippers are also excellent teachers and will provide guidance to all interested in learning. Dress is casual and based on the temperature. Layering is suggested since it’s often cooler on the water than on land. Occasionally you may get splashed, and the water in the spring can be cool. There is a restroom if you need to change clothes after work. Sun block, water, hats, and croakies to keep your glasses on your head are also recommended. Reservations are strongly encouraged – and the only way to guarantee a place on a boat.

What we're about

We share the chair together, whatever gear you wear: ski, ride, carve, free heel … we love it all! We’re not about the gear we wear. We’re about camaraderie, friendship and the sharing of what we know. SCWDC encourages and nurtures all Snowriders, whether you’re new to the snow or a seasoned expert. We’re about the adrenaline and endorphin inducing activities on snow. We're about sharing the chair and seeking fun in and out of the lift line all year round! Come share the chair with us!

Off season, when we can't slide for the want of snow, we'll meet up at least once a month to reconnect/nurture friendships old and new doing fun and interesting things. Meet ups will include select SCWDC ( events as well as impromptu, exploratory, or experimental events thought up or suggested by Meetup members: fun, adventure, camaraderie and friendship on and off the slopes, with fun people of like minds and shared experiences.
