Wat je gaat doen

We're vaccinated for your safety and peace of mind!
If you've ever dreamed of sailing in a tropical paradise, we can help you get a great start to achieve that dream!
From the very start you'll be on our stable and comfortable 36' Sabre sailboat, Condor. We'll jump right in with a little hands-on theory and terminology. Then we'll cover the important safety information and head out into Baltimore harbor. We will steer Condor out away from the dock, and then hand her over to you and your fellow students. Under our watchful and encouraging direction, you will be sailing! Just the wind and the sails and you!
You and the other students will rotate through each position on the boat. You will be steering and hoisting and trimming sails, putting the theory you just learned to practical use. We limit the class size to five students to ensure that everyone gets sufficient hands-on time to learn and practice and ask questions.
During this class, you'll learn basic sailing theory, terminology, and how to steer, hoist sails, trim sails, and tack.
You will also have the opportunity to see many of the famous (and not so famous) Baltimore waterfront landmarks.
Other things to note
We're sailing on the 36' sailboat so it's not likely you'll get wet (unless it is raining). We will sail in light rain, but not in thunderstorms. Come ready to learn and have fun!

I am the founder and director of SeaAffinity, Inc, a Baltimore based non-profit that combines my two passions of sailing and helping people learn. My wife, Suzanne, and I learned to sail over 20 years ago, on small boats. Since then, we have owned and sailed close to 50 different boats of all sizes in the Chesapeake and the Caribbean, and delivered sailboats on the east coast.
I am certified as a US Sailing Instructor, Instructor Trainer, and Master Instructor Trainer, and a member of US Sailing's National Faculty, the group that develops and writes US Sailing's training materials.

Over de organisatie: SeaAffinity, Inc



SeaAffinity uses sailing and water related experiences to challenge youth and adults, including those impacted by disabilities, to develop life skills and realize their potential. Our focus is teaching STEM skills (math and science) to intercity middle school kids through partnerships with community organizations. Our hands-on program engages kids, and gets them excited about learning.

Dit is een ervaring met sociale impact, waarbij 100% van wat je voor deze ervaring betaalt rechtstreeks naar SeaAffinity, Inc gaat.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Look for our boat with the SeaAffinity banner behind the tall red brick smokestack at Tindeco Wharf.
We start our experience in the Canton area of Baltimore, adjacent to the Canton Waterfront Park and the Korean War Memorial, just across the harbor from historic Fort McHenry. You'll see the industrial side of Baltimore's harbor as well Domino Sugar, Under Armor's headquarters, and even Baltimore's own Statue of Liberty!

I’ve received a few sailing lessons now from Steve and Suzanne. Their unique approach to sailing feels completely tailor made to my goals and current skill level. I highly recommend taking at least one lesson. I sure you’ll learn a lot whether your brand new to sailing or an old salt.

My husband and I were just on the water with Steve and Sue taking a private sailing lesson on Condor. It was a wonderful experience! They sure know their stuff and they graciously (and patiently) shared their sailing knowledge and experience with us. Not only are they good teachers but fine people as well. We hope to do it again in the future!

Sailing on SeaAffinity with Steve and Suzanne is always a treat, no matter how much wind there is or the sea state. Regardless of your sailing experience, you'll enjoy sailing with these two MASTERFUL instructors!

Susan and Steve are really sweet and fun. We had a great time. They shared a lot of information in a fun and manageable way. Great way to learn and have some fun on the water

Steve and Suzanne are incredible sailors and instructors. I am taking multiple private lessons with them to help me learn how to sail better, sooner than I could on my own. I highly recommend their sailing services for anyone wanting the peace and serenity that comes as soon as the engine is turned off and you feel the wind powering you.

This was a great way to start my Saturday in Baltimore! And Steve & Suzanne had great insights into the city that were nice to hear while sailing.
