We are thrilled to celebrate a milestone today – District Sailing has been up and running for over 8 wonderful months! We couldn't have achieved this without your incredible support, and we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude.  

Owned and operated by local sailors, District Sailing is an online retailer specializing in custom sailing apparel and merchandise. The idea for District Sailing evolved from a desire to support local sailing clubs and sailing schools in Washington, DC and the Chesapeake.  

We believe that sailing is not just a pastime; it's a way of life. Sailing fosters a deep connection with nature, that teaches respect for the sea. It encourages teamwork and camaraderie. Sailing cultivates a sense of adventure, resilience, and self-discovery, instilling valuable life skills such as problem-solving, decision-making, and adaptability. As a sport, a passion, and a lifestyle, sailing enriches the lives of those who embrace it, offering moments of serenity and exhilaration, all while nurturing a profound love for the open water. That is why we are committed to supporting sailing in Washington, DC and the region. Promotion of the sport of sailing and sailing clubs in Washington and the Chesapeake is an important part of this support. And promotion is our business…  

Your support of our small business goes beyond the products you purchase. It contributes to the greater mission of promoting and supporting the sport of sailing. By choosing our merchandise, you're actively participating in the growth and popularization of our sport and our community.  

We would like to thank our major clients this year, Sailing Club of Washington (SCOW), DC Sail, and all of our customers who ordered custom sailing shirts and merchandise from District Sailing!

Fair winds,
