SMSA Burgee

Welcome to Southern Maryland Sailing Association (SMSA) on the web.

SMSA was founded in 1972 as a member-run social club by a group of like-minded sailors interested in racing, cruising, and just spending time with fellow sailors.
Since then, SMSA has grown to more than 175 memberships and has continued to offer a large variety of activities for its members and the community.
SMSA offers comprehensive racing, cruising, junior & adult sail training, education, and social activities both on-shore and on the water that allow members to enjoy the sport of sailing through a variety of venues throughout the year.
Our goal is to continue to be the premiere sailing venue in the Southern Maryland and mid-Chesapeake Bay region.
We are ideally located in Solomons, MD, near some of the finest cruising waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
We look forward to your first or frequent return visits with us.
