Annapolis Naval Sailing Association membership is open to all. Some ANSA members are very experienced, others are in training and improving their sailing skills and a number are inexperienced or have no sailing experience at all. ANSA’s members include sailing neophytes, social sailors, able-bodied crew, and sailing instructors.

Many of ANSA’s members have simply joined for the fun and camaraderie of sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. There are weekend day sails, dinner sails to a variety of dockside restaurants, monthly pot-luck/business/training meetings, moonlight sails, starlight sails (many with a professional astronomer), and Wednesday (hump-day) sails. ANSA also has occasional weekend raft-ups with other sailing clubs and special events like July 4th fireworks sails and trips to the Baltimore Inner Harbor.

ANSA now offers ASA certifications in addition to the USNSA Senior Crew, Watch Captain, and Cruising Skipper previously offered.  Membership is a prerequisite to take ANSA training.   As a non-profit organization, the fees charged for these certifications cost far less than many other sailing instruction schools.

Join ANSA for just $65 for a single membership, $75 for a family.  Use the Form below to join and also to renew your membership. Also, check out ANSA’s Club Sailing Fees which are far less than any sailing organization in Annapolis.  We’d like to welcome you aboard today!
