Sailing Club of Washington


GET SKIPPER CERTIFIED

Very popular with club members is the opportunity to become a qualified skipper and use the club boats for sailing on the Potomac, from the Washington Sailing Marina.  SCOW does have some requirements for this privilege in addition to membership. 

Becoming a SCOW Skipper


To sail SCOW boats, members need to qualify as a skipper. This process includes both a written and water exam (link below. this section). 

After you have complied with all the Skipper requirements, you will be asked to complete and submit the Skipper Agreement (link below this section) and proof of attendance in a NASBLA certified boating safety course.  After the Skipper Director receives and reviews your document submissions, the Director will issue a SCOW invoice for you to pay on-line for your skipper fees.  For more information download the guidelines by clicking below.
