Boats 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, it’s usually best to call ahead, especially for a J/22. Also, on weekdays during July and August, our youth program uses a majority of the Rhodes 19 fleet before 3:30pm. Even so, with a reservation, we can usually secure you a boat anytime after 12pm during these months. Members may reserve a boat online or call us at 617-242-3821 to check availability and reserve a boat.
