The Downtown Sailing Center is partnering with The Chesapeake Down Syndrome Parent Group to create a sailing program for teenagers and adults who have Down syndrome who would like to learn how to sail! The program will be divided up into 5 session throughout the summer. It will teach sailing and valuable life lessons.  Each participant will get time and practice in two kinds of boats and get to show off what they learned in a mini regatta at the end!

Session 2 is the Fleet and Facilities event. We will be running it like a small work party where participants will get a chance to learn about boat terminology while helping to clean up the docks. They will be divided into small groups with an activity leader, they will help with washing the Access Dinghies and sorting life jackets, cleaning up the docks, taking trash off boats and other small tasks. We will need the following volunteers: 

  • 2 greeters 
  • 4-6 activity leaders - you will be instructed on the activities to help with. 

We are asking volunteers to arrive as close to 5PM as possible to help with set up.

The Participants are expected to arrive at the sailing center around 5:30-6:00PM. Event starts at 6PM and it should wrap up around 7:30PM.

Refreshments and pizza will be provided. 

It will be a great opportunity for volunteers to experience one of our accessible programs in a relaxed atmosphere. Since the program has a smaller group of participants it allows for the volunteers to learn the ins and outs while helping an amazing group of people learn about sailing. 

There is training available for all of these positions, if you are interested in learning about a specific role feel free to call the office at 410-727-0772 ext 113 or email Johanna Murphy, the DSC Volunteer Coordinator at:
