High school sailing first started in Southern Maryland in 1999, through the efforts of Stovy Brown and the non-profit Southern Maryland Sailing Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. In 2009, we moved south into St. Mary’s County while expanding our fleet of FJ’s and creating the SMSF’s operational body, Sailing Center Chesapeake.
Sailing Center Chesapeake is still supported by SMSF, which funds the high-capital equipment involved in sailing. We currently operate out of Tall Timbers Marina, thanks to the kind patronage of the marina owner. We strongly believe in providing our community’s youth the opportunity to experience the waterways surrounding their home.
Financial aid scholarships for SCC programs are available on an individual basis, in the spirit of our motto as “A Community Resource”. Contact the SMSF treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sailing Center Chesapeake is located at Tall Timbers Marina in Tall Timbers, MD. We are situated between Herring Creek and the Potomac River. Most of our sailing programs take place in Herring Creek, which provides good sailing conditions in a protected area. We also have the option of sailing in the Potomac River when sailing conditions are more favorable there. Our location provides excellent sailing opportunities regardless of the weather!
Our current fleet of boats includes 4 inflatable Zodiac powerboats; 18 FJ dinghies; 2 c420 dinghies and 2 i470 dinghies; 3 Lasers; and various canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.
