Privileges of Membership
Membership in Pentagon Sailing Club allows you to participate in Club cruises and social sails, sub-charter or rent Club boats, participate in classroom training or on-the-water training (Bay or River), vote in the affairs of the Club (Full-Regular Members only), hold elected office (Full-Regular Members only), and to receive the Club newsletter. The club cannot guarantee that non-military members will be able to access Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling which may occasionally prevent non-military members from participating in events and classes there.
Of course, membership also allows you to experience the exhilaration of sailing, and to enjoy the beauty of our rivers and bays in the company of great folk.

PSC Ship's Store by Leslie, Our Club Chandler
The Pentagon Sailing Club has PSC burgees and PSC logo items available for our members. This service is not a moneymaking operation, but a service for our members. The PSC Bridge working collaboratively with Lands’ End offers members the opportunity to purchase quality merchandise [shirts, tote bags, hats, etc.] with Bridge approved club logo’s. Ordering on-line is simple through the internet at a club unique website. The PSC home page at Lands’ End Business Outfitters can be reached through the internet at: http://ces.landsend.com/pentagon_sailing_club. CAUTION: There is an underscore, not a space, between “pentagon” and “sailing” and again between “sailing” and “club.”
The Bridge encourages members to wave the Pentagon Sailing Club flag – by purchasing clothing and accessories through Lands’ End with the Pentagon Sailing Club logo. Members can select items to wear for every season and order them directly from the convenience of their home. Consider purchasing gifts for special occasions, birthdays and holidays. Items make a great conversation piece and a way to attract new members to our FANTASTIC organization.
