Sailing Association Holds Membership Drive


The NIH Sailing Association (NIHSA) is a Recreation & Welfare activity club. Membership is open to NIH (and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) employees, patients, contractors and their families. 

The club’s main activity is sailing five Flying Scots, owned by the club and maintained in slips south of Annapolis, on the South River. Club meetings are held each month and are open to all members. Yearly membership dues vary according to level of participation. Members qualify to charter club boats by completing the NIHSA basic training course or by demonstrating their competence in a comprehensive checkout sail. 

NIHSA provides many opportunities for members to get together and share time on the Chesapeake Bay. Check out the website for details:
