Welcome to the Boston Sailing Meetup
The Boston Sailing Meetup group discusses all things sailing, from cruising the Northeast to chartering in the Caribbean to dinghy and big boat racing. You don't have to own a boat to join, you just have to get a thrill from feeling the wind on your face. We love to share stories about fun daysails, great local destinations, the competitive thrill of racing, and our dreams of being able to spend more time at sea. We discuss the latest gear, debate the best boats, and share opinions on everything sailing.
Sailing in Boston
Boston Harbor is an incredibly exciting place to sail for both it's past and present. The harbor was the site of the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill, and waterfront commerce continues to be an important part of Boston?s business. The U.S.S. Constitution
("Old Ironsides"?) was built in Boston Harbor in the 1790's and once again calls the Harbor home, bridging the past and the present. Today, the Harbor is home to the 34-island Boston Harbor Islands State Park
Boston is such an exciting place to sail. You can sail around the historic harbor islands and go ashore to picnic or sightsee with your family and friends. You can take a short sail north to Marblehead or Salem. You can enjoy a weekend trip to Provincetown on Cape Cod. Or you can plan a longer trip to the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.Local ResourcesBoston Boating
