The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) is an award-winning, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) community sailing center offering sailing instruction and access to sailing without the cost of private ownership and boat maintenance since 1994.
"The Downtown Sailing Center provides quality educational and life enriching programs that promote self-esteem and teamwork through the joy of sailing. The Downtown Sailing Center is committed to promoting an environment of inclusiveness especially accessibility, especially to youth, persons with disabilities, and those with limited opportunity.”
We achieve our mission by:
- offering the community affordable access to quality sailing programs and events;
- providing education in sailing and water safety skills at all levels for all ages and abilities; and
- sponsoring both recreational and racing opportunities.
The DSC’s many sailing programs include junior day and overnight sailing camps, outreach programs for at-risk youth and persons with disabilities, adult lessons, cruising, open recreational sailing, corporate outings and team building, charters and racing.
The DSC is one of several hundred community sailing centers recognized by US SAILING, the national governing body of sailing. The DSC was recognized by US SAILING as the Outstanding New Program in 1997, Outstanding Seasonal Program in 1999 and Outstanding Community Program in 2012.
