Tell us about how you got into sailing, your experiences thus far, and future sailing goals. I didn’t genuinely start sailing until my late 20s or early 30s. I had sailed on various boats a few times, but I didn’t know what I was doing. I’d be told to pull a line, so I’d try […]

Tell us about how you got into sailing? I was about 35 (12 years ago) when my friend Shannon asked me if I wanted to go for a sail out of the Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Once I had a hand on that tiller and the boat was heeling and moving, […]

Sailing seems a little intimidating to some people, and we can understand why. They may think all sailors are members of yacht clubs, own sleek racing or cruising boats, or have extensive skills and training.

Tell us about how you got into sailing? My first sailing experience was in Boston in the mid-1990s. I was almost 30 years of age and in graduate school at MIT. I spent a few weeks learning to sail in a Tech Dinghy on the Charles River. After that summer, I did not sail again […]

Usually this page is dedicated to telling the stories of Bay-based sailors who have taken up the sport during adulthood, and although these newbies are invariably amazingly interesting subjects, occasionally we take a break from the personal-profile format and attempt to give some tried-and-true advice for the would-be sailor who is still figuring out the […]

How did you get into sailing? Through our children! Sawyer and Sabina are teenagers now, but when they were about six and eight years old, they began spending a week or two every summer at Premier Sailing School in Irvington, VA. For many years they attended with the children of our friends Darryl and Jen […]

About five years ago I was in my mid-forties, going through a divorce, and looking for a new challenge. Tell us about how you got into sailing? I took an introductory sailing class at J/World Annapolis. I had been on boats in the 1980s but never helped sail them, so I was a true beginner. […]
