NIHSA Membership Drive Underway

The NIH Sailing Association (NIHSA), a club of the Recreation and Welfare Association, is open to NIH (and NOAA) employees, patients, contractors and their families. The club’s main activity is sailing five Flying Scots, which are owned by the NIHSA and maintained in slips south of Annapolis on the South River.

Club meetings are held each month and are open to all club members. Yearly membership dues vary according to participation levels. Members qualify to charter club boats by completing the NIHSA Introduction to Sailing course and/or demonstrating their competence in a comprehensive checkout sail. NIHSA provides many opportunities for club members to get together.
