Summer Open House 5/25

Spend the summer cooling off on the Charles River!
Now is the time to learn to sail!
Join us for the free Summer Open House 5/25.

Special Open-House membership promotion: $20 off the full year adult membership for $249. Purchase your membership during the Open House and kick off your sailing career with a skippered introductory sail.

Orientations and tours every hour on the hour - learn about what Community Boating has to offer and start learning some boating lingo.

Breakfast pastries will be provided by Panificio, and coffee and ice cream will be provided by JP Licks - great local businesses right on Charles St. Join us for a cookout in the afternoon as well!

Charles/MGH on the Red Line is the closest T stop to get to Community Boating by crossing the footbridge. You may also park at the Mass Eye and Ear lot for $7 for the day. For more information, visit

    Hi all! We will still be hosting the Open House tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone there! In the past Open Houses, it has been shown that those who come at 10AM get the most out of their visit. You'll be able to peek into the 11AM Rigging class and enjoy a great cookout. That will bring you 2/3 of the way to your Solo rating to go sailing on the Charles yourself! Don't forget - if you'd like to join, there is a Meetup discount at any time for new members. Just message me your name and email and I'll send you your discount code :)

      We will still hold the Open House even if it's raining. We can hold some of it inside and outside under tents. We won't be cancelling the event unless there are very special circumstances. Aliki, I have removed your contact information so other members don't see it but will send you your discount information. Best,

      We'll be holding the Open House, rain or shine! (Just as we do with our sailing - minus lightning and thunderstorms.) I'll have a Meetup sign-in sheet at the front if you could please just initial your name so I can come greet you :)
