PSC River Fleet
PSC normally operates out of Capitol Cove Marina [directions] on Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, but is temporarily using Washington Sailing Marina as a summer base during the pandemic. The boats are used primarily for training, racing, and PSC social sailing events, but can also be used by qualified skippers. All four boats are sloop-rigged with 5-hp Tohatsu outboard motors and wing keels that draw 2' 8". Their masts rise 29' 2" above the water and each boat displaces approximately 2250 lbs. See the Boat Use Policy page for more information on boat use. A list of boat captains can be found at "Bridge Officers and Assistants." If you have any problems, please contact them with your questions and/or concerns.
