Member Sails

Cruising Skippers and Crew take out the cruising boats on Sunday and Wednesday Member sails. Cruising Crew receive priority but all are welcome when space is available. The Cruising Program wants to "spread the love" whenever possible!

Cruiser Sundays

A full day of sailing from 10:00 AM–6:00 PM with lunch underway beyond the bridge and back. Crews will be assigned by the Dock Master as to boat assignment and other pertinent information prior to departure.  Crews will be contacted by the cruising skipper as to boat assignment and time to meet on the dock for departure.  Open only to cruising-level crew and skippers.  One week advanced registration required.

Full Moon Sails

Scheduled to coincide with the full moon, these popular events are an opportunity to do some night sailing. Full moon sails leave the docks at approximately 7:30 PM and may return as late as 10:00 or 11:00. Crews will be contacted by a cruising skipper as to boat assignment and time to meet on the dock for departure (times vary based on time of sunset).  Open only to cruising-level crew and skippers.  One week advanced registration required.
Overnight, Weekend and Raft-up Cruises

The highlight of the cruising season, these popular events are a great opportunity to get some real cruising experience.  Scheduled approximately one per month throughout the season, these events are overnight cruises to a predetermined destination on the Chesapeake Bay.  The raft-up cruises involve the DSC cruisers and other privately-owned boats for a rendezvous either anchoring or docking together.  Crews will be contacted by a cruising skipper as to boat assignment and other pertinent information prior to departure.  Open only to cruising-level crew and skippers.  One/two week advanced registration required.
