Courageous Challenge

Every Monday in June, individuals from businesses around Boston raced on a company-sponsored boat. We’ve hosted both seasoned and novice sailors alike from 16 companies for fast-paced, short-course keelboat racing on the Harbor, and they’ve had a blast doing it. Thanks to everyone who signed up!
