The Waiver

The Courageous Sailing Agreement & General Release and Membership Terms & Conditions form, also known as the 'Waiver' is required to participate in all activites hosted by Courageous Sailing at our Charlestown Site. All participants, members, guests, etc. must sign the waiver once per season. The form is available below for electronic download. We encourage you to review it carefully so you understand your rights and responsibilities. The form is electronic, so you may complete it on your computer, phone or tablet. You may also print it out and bring it with you on your first visit of the season. Hard copies are available at the front desk should you wish to fill it out when you arrive.

For Over 25 Years, Courageous Sailing's mission has been to transform children's lives through sailing programs that inspire learning, personal growth and leadership.

Charlestown

The America's Cup 12 meter Courageous once lived at Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard. This two-time America's Cup winner lent its name to Courageous Sailing in the late 1980s. While yacht Courageous has found a new home in Newport, RI, Courageous Sailing has continued for over 25 years at our Charlestown location.

Availability

Boats are usually available anytime you feel like sailing. But there are some limitations, as well as some times when it’s good to make a reservation in advance. On weekends during the season, it’s usually best to call ahead, especially for a J/22. Also, on weekdays during July and August, our youth program uses a majority of the Rhodes 19 fleet before 3:30pm. Even so, with a reservation, we can usually secure you a boat anytime after 12pm during these months. Members may reserve a boat online through our Boat Booking System - You may also call us at 617-242-3821 to check availability and reserve a boat.
