Upcoming American Spirit Events

Cruise on the Potomac with DC Sail's 65 foot schooner,
American Spirit.


In the spring, we offer spectacular Cherry Blossom Cruises as well as Mother's Day and Father's Day events.

From mid-May to early October, we host public Sunset Sails every-other Friday evening! Pack a picnic and join us for a three-hour sailing event and capture the stunning sunset! 

There is no better venue than American Spirit to view the nation's capitol fine fireworks display on 4th of July ~ Pack your picnic and come aboard for a fabulous night time sail and view the show from the deck of our gorgeous schooner.

Private charters are perfect for corporate outings, birthday celebrations, alumni gatherings, or most any get-together.  She has also been the venue of choice for small weddings and engagements! 

The American Spirit can also serve as a floating classroom for students through its Maritime Education Program Educational Sails for school groups.

Please contact Traci Mead, Executive Director, for further information and how to go about booking the vessel.
