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.
Also for limited spring and fall times, we will have a number of keelboat Rhodes 19s available!
Learn to sail – no prior knowledge of boats required. Start off with just an hour or two of instruction and build your way toward taking sailboats out by yourself!
Call or stop by the boathouse for information on our Intro to Sailing Classes, and to schedule further classes. Check our calendar for the regular lesson schedule.
