Pentagon Sailing Club (PSC) 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 (JBAB) and maintain a fleet of club-owned sailboats. While the club is open to all, preference is given to members of the United States military and the club can not guarantee that non-military affiliated members will be able to participate in events held on base. PSC offers classroom training, on-the-water sailing instruction, recreational sailing, sailboat racing, and other sailing activities sponsored or coordinated by the club. We offer sail training and qualify our members in affiliation with the American Sailing Association(ASA).
