The Downtown Sailing Center is an accredited US Sailing school that provides courses for all sailing levels. Our comprehensive curriculum helps every student reach their full potential through a balance of structure and individualized attention.
Taste of Sailing and First Sail courses are taught in our comfy and roomy Sonars. Keelboat Lessons are typically taught in our nimble and responsive J/22s. US Sailing's "Basic Cruising" is taught aboard Captain Bob's personal MAKANI, a Bavaria 38 cruising sailboat with all the amenities.
Members of the Downtown Sailing Center receive special discounts on education courses. If you live in the Baltimore area, we strongly recommend joining a the crew level so you can get straight to the water for practice after your lessons! Click Here for details on Member Sails.
Private lessons are available for up to three adults. Lessons can be tailored to all levels, from beginner to US SAILING Basic Keelboat Certification. Private sailing lessons cost $60/hour for one adult plus $10/hour per each additional person. There is a 2 hr. requirement for private lessons, but we recommend three hours for maximum educational benefit.
