The Pentagon Sailing Club is Washington DC’s premier volunteer association dedicated to safe recreational sailing on the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and wherever the winds may take us. We base our operations out of Capitol Cove Marina on Joint Base Anacostia – Bolling (formerly Bolling AFB), and maintain a fleet of club-owned sailboats. PSC offers classroom training, on-the-water sailing instruction, recreational sailing, sailboat racing and club charters. We offer sailing lessons and qualify our members in affiliation with American Sailing Association(ASA) and the U.S. Naval Sailing Association (USNSA).
