Welcome To The Little Washington Sailing school
The Little Washington Sailing School is made up of dedicated sailing enthusiasts, who have created a Sailing School for the youth of the area.

We encourage you to support this program. You might want to consider sponsoring a youth who would not be able to experience the thrill of sailing without your help. A donation to LWSS is tax deductible. A limited number of scholarships are made available through donations.

Your support will help give many children an experience of a lifetime enjoying the beautiful waters of the Pamlico River while learning the responsibility of commanding a sailboat!

YOU CAN HELP! Volunteers are also needed.
