High School Sailing in Southern Maryland was started in 1999 by Stovy Brown, with the help of the Southern Maryland Sailing Association. In 2009, it moved across the river due to the expansion of our fleet of FJ’s and the creation of the Sailing Center Chesapeake. Our high school sailing program allows students from high schools throughout southern MD to participate in Varsity and Junior Varsity sailing events. Middle school students who are interested in becoming high school sailors in the future are encouraged to participate.  Sailing is an active high school sport in both the Spring (March – May) and the Fall (September – November). The Sailing Center Chesapeake high school sailing program acts as a facilitator for local high school sailing teams. Any student is welcome to participate in the program, regardless of whether they have a program at their school or not. The Sailing Center Chesapeake is a non-profit organization, supported by the Southern Maryland Sailing Foundation 501(c)3 which provides for most of the high-capital equipment involved in sailing. It currently operates out of the Tall Timbers Marina due to the kind patronage of the marina owners. We believe very strongly in providing youth in our community with the opportunity to interact with and experience the waterways that surround their home. Scholarships are available for qualifying individuals.
