Core Fleet Membership




Courageous memberships make access to Boston Harbor easy! A Core Fleet membership allows you to take one of our 27 Rhodes 19s out sailing whenever you’d like. No matter what your sailing plans, schedule, or budget is like, we’ve got a membership option for you.

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.

Covid-19 Updates
Guidelines for member use, boat availability, and guest privileges are subject to change and will reflect the most up to date CDC and Massachusetts guidelines with respect to Covid-19. Please continue to check our Covid-19 Updates page for more direct guidance.

Family Memberships: Our family membership works as a way for family members with more than one skipper to share access to the same Rhodes 19 membership. Each skipper must be at least 18 years of age and complete the Courageous on the water and written exams before taking out a vessel on their own. Each member has full guest privileges and is welcome to join us for all member offerings. To add a third skipper please click here. No more than 3 skippers may share a Family Membership.
