The Universal Sailing Club (USC) was formed in 2001 by Black sailors from the Baltimore-Washington-Annapolis region to cultivate a community of Black sailors on the Chesapeake Bay. Our members sail together as captains or crew members on member owned boats from May-October. Boat ownership is not a requirement of club members. There are opportunities to crew with other members who sail their own boats, or to charter boats with other members for day sails or weekend cruises.

The Club is governed by an annually elected Board led by a Commodore at the helm. USC member meetings are great times to meet fellow sailors, engage in sailing-related seminars- including topics related to African-American maritime history, enjoy good food/drinks, and  catch up on club news.
