DC Sail in the News

Sunday, June 12, 2022

"You can see them from Southeast Washington’s booming waterfront: small dinghies, their sails white and crisp above the Anacostia River. Even in this landlocked city, sailing holds a powerful allure — yet despite its often expensive and exclusive reputation, it’s surprisingly accessible.

The dinghies belong to DC Sail, the National Maritime Heritage Foundation’s community sailing program. Like other community sailing centers, DC Sail is a nonprofit organization that supports access for everyone.
