Already know how to sail? We have 4 Centerboard Cape Cod Mercurys. These are the same boats that are popular on the Charles River. They are perfect small sailboats for beginner sailors, and for daysails around the UMass Boston peninsula.
1 solo kayak and 4 tandem kayaks. These open top kayaks are a pleasure for exploring the coves of Dorchester bay and UMass Boston’s peninsula.
Learn to sail – no prior knowledge of boats required. Start off with just an hour or two of instruction and build your way toward a certification that is valid at any Courageous Sailing site. At the moment, we will be running lessons on Fridays at 4, 5, and 6pm and Saturdays & Sundays every hour from 12pm until 6pm
