Sail on the Charles River

I have a membership at Community Boating, on the Charles River. I can take up to 7 guests out sailing with me. So let's go out some weekend, sail, and maybe eat lunch together. Date TBD.
Best way to get to CBI is to get off at the Charles/MGH T station (red line). Once you're out of the T station, look for the foot bridge to the left of the Longfellow bridge, that takes you over Storrow Drive and to the Esplanade. The boat house is right by the foot bridge.
Parking can be difficult in the area. If you can't find street parking, you can park at the Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary parking lot, and I can get your parking ticket validated for $7. However the entrance to this lot is not easy to find if it's your first time, and if you miss it, you'll easily lose 15+ minutes.
If your situation changes, and you can't make it, please update your RSVP to "no" as soon as possible.
If this is your first time at Community Boating, ask for a guest waiver form at the front desk and fill it out. You should also ask for a guest card.
If you've been to CBI before, bring your guest card. It's $5 to get a replacement card, if you don't bring it.
Sailing sometimes involves getting splashed with water, so you want to wear something you don't mind getting a bit of Charles river water on.
They have day lockers. Bring a lock if you want to use one.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
