    Enjoy a sunset sail aboard the American Spirit every other Friday from May through October. Sign up today for this unique and relaxing view of Washington DC from the deck of a classic-rigged sailing ship!

    *Boarding is at 4:30 PM and the cruise will depart promptly at 5:00 PM.

    Helpful Information:

    Food & Beverage: We do not offer food and beverage service on board for purchase. You're encouraged to bring along a picnic and drinks (beer/wine are permitted - no spirits, please.) Keep your menu super simple such as sandwiches/snacks. 

    Little Sailors: Children are most welcome! You'll need to purchase a ticket for them, infants included. Strollers are permitted. Our Crew will stow the strollers below decks during the sail. There is no power available during the sail, so please be prepared with supplies for your children as we do not have the ability to warm food or bottles.

    Restroom: There is a unisex restroom on board.

    What to wear/bring: You may wish to bring along a lap blanket and be sure to dress for the weather. Even in summer, it can be cooler on the water, so bring along a jacket or sweater if needed. Wear closed-toe, soft soled shoes.

    Cancellation: If severe weather (thunderstorms, excessive winds, etc.) prevents us from being able to safely leave the docks, we will issue a cancellation and full refund of your purchase. Please be advised that we will not cancel in the event of light rain/mist. Rain gear/poncho is then suggested. Cancellation notices are sent out via email typically two hours prior to the planned departure time.

    Payment Information: Full payment must be made at the time of registration. Pending registrations without payment will be auto-cancelled by the system after 15 minutes. Please have your payment information available at the time of registration.

    Helpful Information:

    Food & Beverage: We do not offer food and beverage service on board for purchase. You're encouraged to bring along a picnic and drinks (beer/wine are permitted - no spirits, please.) Keep your menu super simple such as sandwiches/snacks.

    Little Sailors: Children are most welcome! You'll need to purchase a ticket for them, infants included. Strollers are permitted. Our Crew will stow the strollers below decks during the sail. There is no power available during the sail, so please be prepared with supplies for your children as we do not have the ability to warm food or bottles.

    Restroom: There is a unisex restroom on board.

    What to wear/bring: You may wish to bring along a lap blanket and be sure to dress for the weather. Even in summer, it can be cooler on the water, so bring along a jacket or sweater if needed. Wear closed-toe, soft soled shoes.

    Cancellation: If severe weather (thunderstorms, excessive winds, etc.) prevents us from being able to safely leave the docks, we will issue a cancellation and full refund of your purchase. Please be advised that we will not cancel in the event of light rain/mist. Rain gear/poncho is then suggested. Cancellation notices are sent out via email typically two hours prior to the planned departure time.

    Payment Information: Full payment must be made at the time of registration. Pending registrations without payment will be auto-cancelled by the system after 15 minutes. Please have your payment information available at the time of registration.

    Game Tickets: We'll issue your game tickets upon return to the docks and after a short Metro trip (Navy Yard/Ballpark stop) or taxi ride to the Nationals stadium, you'll enjoy an exciting game of baseball with the Nat's!

    Please note there will be no Member Sail on Monday, May 27th (Memorial Day Federal Holiday) and Monday, September 2nd (Labor Day Federal Holiday.)

    Weather & Cancellation: Please monitor the weather prior to coming to the docks. For safety, we will close dock operations in the event of thunderstorms in the area within 15 miles, high winds or no wind situations and in extreme heat. While we typically post a notice of cancellation on our home page, Facebook, and Twitter accounts about an hour prior to the 5:30 PM start time, there are occasions where the weather causes a last-minute cancellation of the event. Dock Manager may also cancel the event if the weather becomes dangerous once the boats have launched.

    Enjoy!
