Annapolis Community Boating

Susan Taylor, an ACB volunteer has been very active in organizing the free sails at the city dock and back creek.  These happy smiles are the best thanks anyone can give her.  We’re happy to support this great effort.

Summer Free Sail

Annapolis Community Boating, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making boating accessible and affordable to all Anne Arundel County residents, is offering free sailing and kayaking lessons and boat rides at their Back Creak location.

The first session on April 19 features a half-dozen keel boats provided by Chesapeake Regional Accessible Boating (CRAB). Professional instructors will be on hand to teach the basics and skipper the boats. Students of all ages are welcome. No experience is necessary, but reservations are required. Sign up by phoning 410-268-1500 or e-mailing

Boats will be available at the National Sailing Hall of Fame docks at the northeast end of City Dock. Subsequent Sundays will feature lessons and rides on dinghies, kayaks, J-105s and other boats.
