|Adult Sailing Classes|
Part of the mission of West River Sailing Club is to introduce people to the sport of sailing. To meet this goal, qualified members offer instruction to help people become confident and comfortable in small sailboats. We use small sailboats because no they don’t require great physical strength to adjust the sails or to steer, and also because they provide immediate feedback to all sailors’ actions.

In addition to our Learn to Sail program, members may elect to participate in the WRSC Shared Boat Program (SBP). This program enables members to qualify for use of various sailboats and to go sailing without having to own a boat or park a boat at the club. At present the following classes of boats are available for use through the Shared Boat Program: Flying Scots, Albacores and Lasers.
WRSC is one of the most affordable sailing clubs in the area and the “provisional” membership makes it very affordable to try for a season while you meet new friends and explore if sailing is right for you. Sailing on the Chesapeake with the WRSC Shared Boat Program West River Albacore Fleet is a low cost way to learn to sail and have fun throughout the summer.
Use of the SBP boats requires membership to WRSC and a small annual fee of $160* to cover maintenance and storage expenses of the fleet boats. Participation is limited to four shares per available boat to enable maximum fun and use for all. Members can elect to participate in one, two, or three classes of boats.
Shared boat members include approved graduates of the WRSC Learn to Sail and Learn to Race classes, experienced sailors wanting to get back into sailing/racing, and sailors wanting to try our versatile boat for fun sailing, good racing and the added bonus of a great social group.
*fee structure: one boat type - $160, two boat types - $240, three boat types - $320
