Sailing in Charlestown

Courageous Sailing is headquartered on Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard, close to the Constitution and the Constitution Museum. Our boathouse is accessible by foot, car, bike, ferry, and public transit. We sail in Boston’s inner and outer harbor.

Holidays, 10:00 AM – Sunset

Courageous may suspend operations or close early due to weather. Check our Whiteboard Page for the current conditions and restrictions.


Rhodes 19s are usually available anytime you feel like sailing. But there are some limitations, as well as some times when it’s good to make a reservation in advance.

On weekends during the season, we recommend making a reservation, especially for a J-80. On weekdays during July and August, the majority of the fleet is unavailable until 4 PM, after the summer Youth Program closes.

Members may reserve a boat online or call us at 617-242-3821 to check availability and reserve a boat.
