Interested in Learning How to Sail?

The NIH Sailing Association (NIHSA), an R&W supported club, offers an Introduction to Sailing course for NIH adult employees, contractors, fellows and patients and NOAA employees. The spring course will be offered from Mar. 31 to May 12. For details, visit

The in-class sessions are held on the NIH campus and the onboard (on the water) sessions are held at Selby Bay on the South River near Edgewater, Md. Participants must be able to provide or arrange for their own transportation to both the in-class and onboard sessions. If you are interested in the course and would like more information, contact NIHSA at

If you are an experienced sailor and would like to charter NIHSA boats, contact the group at about joining the club and doing a check-out sail. NIHSA is always looking for experienced volunteers to help with both in-class and onboard instruction.
