Whether you’re a veteran boater or taking lessons for the first time, you’re in store for a memorable experience on the Potomac. Enjoy a breathtaking view of downtown D.C. while sailing, kayaking or enjoying a stand-up paddle board around the iconic Daingerfield Island. Prefer two wheels to the water?

End your adventures with a picnic in the park or stop for delicious contemporary cuisine, your favorite cocktail, and remarkable views of D.C. at the nearby Indigo Landing Restaurant.
The Washington Sailing Marina, located in Alexandria, is the premier facility for one-design and small sailboat racing in the D.C.
