Community Boating, Inc.
During the summer months, the Charles River is filled with small sailboats. Most of them belong this organization, which is the oldest and largest public sailing program in the country. A two-day membership is available to those with prior sailing experience. A fleet of more than 140 boats includes 14.5-foot Cape Cod Mercuries, Lasers, sailboards and Rhodes 19s. The organization's primary mission is the Junior Program—children sail all summer.
Great resource for learning sailing, windsurf, kayaking.
