Social Sail


During Spring, Summer, and Fall, SCOW meets on Thursday evenings for Social Sails at Washington Sailing Marina from 6:00 PM to sundown. Social Sails involve flying scot excursions and cruisers around the lagoon, accompanied by on-shore socializing. 

Potential members and guests are welcome to attend. Please check the SCOW calendar for exact dates. 

(SCOW requires a person to be at least five years of age in order to sail on SCOW's Flying Scots.) 

If your interested in helping as a Chef, Dockmaster or Assistant Dockmaster, please email our volunteer Social Director at or volunteer directly by using our Social Sail Signup

Potomac River Activities


Each month there are SCOW events, usually on the weekends, that include sailing on the Potomac River. These will include boat raft ups, picnics, and more. Crewing opportunities for both River and Bay Activities are available.Raft Up on the Potomac

Ask how YOU can lead a Potomac River sail!!!


Monthly Membership Meeting


We hold six or more general membership meetings every year. The short business meeting with Officer/Director reports begins at 7:00 p.m., usually followed by a program of interest to the Membership, like a speaker on a sailing related topic.  For specific dates and locations, please check the calendar on our Home Page. 

These meetings are an ideal way for new and potential members to get familiar with the various activities offered by SCOW. Our meetings are a great way to connect with new friends, crew and skippers and share your suggestions for improving our Club.

Sailboat Racing


Every Wednesday evening starting April through September, members meet at the Washington Sailing Marina at 4:30 pm for informal races. Members race the club's Flying Scots and some members race their own Scots, lasers or whatever. No racing experience is needed and all members are welcome to join in. Come on down and crew!

More details can be found in the Race with SCOW page.

Chesapeake Bay Activities


Throughout the sailing season there are SCOW sailing events that occur either on or near the Chesapeake Bay. Members who have boats on the bay or who can trailer boats to the water will gather for raft ups and/or dock parties during the summer months. To lead a bay sail or to invite SCOW members aboard your boat on the bay, please contact
