Founded in 1977, the Boston Sailing Center has become the most popular sailing school/sailing club in New England. The Center offers instruction from basic sailing to coastal cruising and racing. Member have access to our fleet of 70 keelboats which range in size from 23 to 40 feet. Our regular season runs May through October but we also offer frostbite racing, navigation courses, seminars and social activities during the winter months.
Our facilities are unique - a Louisiana Riverboat berthed at Lewis Wharf on Boston Harbor. Just a short walk north of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, our floating classroom and clubhouse is an excellent venue for parties and other functions. We're also close to a wide variety of historical sites, restaurants and nighttime entertainment spots. Public parking is available nearby.
From the Riverboat, we enjoy unrestricted sailing along Boston's historic waterfront and beyond, including day sails among the beautiful Boston Harbor islands, overnight trips to Marblehead and longer sails to destinations like Provincetown, Martha's Vineyard and Newport.
During our regular season we are open daily from 9:00am to Sunset.
