"My two daughters had an amazing experience with the DC Sail summer camp and have talked about it throughout the year. We are in a fortunate position to afford it. I believe all kids should have a chance to have similar experiences regardless of their parents' income level. " ~ Irina

DC Sail provides unique sailing and boating safety opportunities available to area youth each year!

Our programs focus on STEM-based (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum including safe boating practices, environmental awareness, leadership development & physical fitness.

It is only with your help that we can make this possible! 

Please click here to launch the 2020 Youth Scholarship Goals Summary. With the reduction in programs and subsequent cancellation of events due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, the Youth Scholarship Goals will carry over to the 2021 sailing season.

DC Sail, a program of the National Maritime Heritage Foundation, is the only community-based non-profit sailing organization in the District of Columbia. Our program revenue and your donations make it possible for DC Sail to provide opportunities for the youth of our community to learn how to sail and gain knowledge in boating safety.  

The goal of our youth programs is to teach young people the skills they will need to be successful sailors and lifetime skills such as teamwork, decision-making and respect for our fragile waterway systems and overall environment.  

Donations also help fund scholarships for our young prospective sailors to attend our summer camp, "Kids Set Sail," and our expanding High School Racing Program. A day of summer camp, for example, is $75. Please consider a donation to sponsor a young sailor!

Thank you for your generous support!
