There are several events this spring sponsored by DC Sail. First up is the Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival on April 7 during the five-week long National Cherry Blossom Festival. The Cherry Blossom American Spirit Fireworks Cruise leaves the Gangplank Marina at 6:30pm and returns at 9:30pm after the fireworks show. Tickets are $60.
The Cherry Blossom Regatta will take place on April 21 where participants will have the opportunity to race in a DC Sail Flying Junior (FJ). Tickets are $50 for a team of two and proceeds benefit DC Sail's youth scholarship fund. Limited boats are available. Another option is to watch the Regatta from the American Spirit schooner. That option costs $30. Also, the American Spirit will set sail throughout the extended festival for special cherry blossom cruises.
