"The Brendan Sailing Program showed my son he could win no matter the challenge! I have been telling him for years, now he believes it!"

Parent of Brendan Sailor, 2019


To build pathways for self-confidence and personal growth in children with learning differences… through individually tailored experiential instruction in sailing

Brendan focuses on each student and his or her individual needs. While we teach sailing skills and safety on the water, the end result is a strong sense of accomplishment and enhanced self-worth. Through our Program, Brendan students not only learn how to sail - they gain a foundation for building self-confidence and social skills through sailing.

Brendan Sailing 2020

While this year we would have ideally hosted our sailing camps on the water, we were unable due to the ongoing health crisis. Fortunately we were able to host virtual camp sessions. Needless to say, we had a blast! See our blog post for more info and recap videos from all four sessions hosted in July 2020.

Save your spot for 2021 Summer Sailing Programs in Annapolis, St. Mary's, and DC! We hope you join us!

"Brendan Sailing helped build the confidence in my child, not only to drive a sailboat but also to take me sailing with her. Many people do not respect that some children may need more time to learn and can get distracted... Brendan instructors were parent and understanding with her."
