Core Fleet Membership
$65.00 – $875.00
Courageous memberships make it very easy to get started and to step up to the next level when the time comes. We offer a fleet of 27 Rhodes 19’s to suit your sailing plans, your schedule, and your budget.
All memberships include access to barbecues, racing, fireworks-watching parties, moonlight sails, Harbor Island camping trips, and discounts on courses and Gill apparel. Private lessons are always 50% off for members, and courses are discounted 10%. Members are welcome to take guests sailing for no extra charge, or sail solo after passing a single-handed checkout. As a Courageous member, you’ll be a part of an enthusiastic, inclusive community of sailors…and you’ll be helping Courageous provide free and low-cost sailing opportunities for Boston kids.
Take a look at the different options and decide which fleet and membership option works best for you. Not a sailor yet? No problem! Check out our Course and Membership Combos.
Note: Year-long Core Fleet memberships run from May 1 through October 31, or for one calendar year if purchased after May 1. Members must pass an on-the-water checkout and written test in order to sail a Courageous boat without an instructor; please see our Flag Ratings section for more information. An on-the-water checkout is required for each type of boat sailed; typically, as boat size increases, so does Courageous’s expectation for seamanship and skill level. Our sailing area extends out around the Harbor Islands for qualified members. Courageous is open noon-sunset on weekdays and 10-sunset on weekends and holidays, May 1 through October 31. Boat availability is usually plentiful (except before 3:30 on weekdays during the 6 weeks of our summer Youth Program), but is not guaranteed. A small additional fee may be charged for some member activities. All memberships include coverage of damage caused by normal wear and tear; members are financially responsible for damage due to negligence or errors in boathandling or judgement.
