Sailing Club Holds Membership Drive

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

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

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