The J/22 Upgrade gives you access to our fleet of nine J/22s, in addition to the Rhodes 19s, for just $100 more. While we all love the Rhodes 19, there comes a time when you want to sail in a higher gear. The J/22 is a fast and highly responsive keelboat, built for speed and performance.  You must pass an on-the-water J/22 checkout in order to sail them.

Guest Pass - $50

When combined with a membership, a guest pass allows you to take as many guests sailing with you as many times as you’d like for a one-time fee of $50/season. Generally, a Rhodes-19 or J/22 can fit one skipper and 3-4 guests safely at one time.

Damage Waiver - $50

Members who purchase the optional damage waiver are released from financial responsibility for physical damage to Courageous boats in their care and custody, so long as it is not caused by the Member's negligence or intentional conduct, violation of the Courageous Sailing Agreement & General Release and Membership Terms & Conditions, failure to stay clear of other boats and obstacles, or running aground.  No waiver of damage liability shall be effective until the damage waiver payment is received.  Please note that the damage waiver does not waive financial responsibility for damage or injury to other boats, property or people, towing services, or lost equipment.  Please read our Sailing Agreement & General Release and Membership Terms & Conditions to fully understand our policies.

One Day Membership

Regular Price: $95 + a one-time $50 checkout fee

Our One-Day membership option, similar to a boat rental, is perfect for experienced sailors who are looking for a little time on the water without a longer commitment. In order to take out one of our Rhodes 19s or J22s, we'll need to schedule a quick on-the-water checkout (including a crew overboard recovery drill and docking under sail) with one of our instructors, which you may do in advance or on the day you go sailing. A One-Day membership gives you access to Boston's inner harbor, and can last for a few hours or the whole day--it's up to you!

If you'd like to purchase a One-Day Membership, email frontdesk@courageoussailing.org to schedule your checkout and reserve a boat.

For some of us, it's all about the big boats, backup engines, and thoughts of sailing around the world. Our cruising fleet won't take you quite that far, but it will take you out of the harbor and then some. Whether you want to invite friends and family for trips around the Harbor Islands, anchor for a picnic lunch, spend a night moored or at anchor under the stars, or practice your big boat skills in preparation for a bareboat trip in the Caribbean, we've got a convenient cruising membership option for you.

The Courageous cruising fleet is growing and improving every year, with boats ranging from 24 to 34 feet, including three J24s, an O'Day 240, a Tartan 27 yawl, an Erikson 28, a CS 30, and a Pierson 34. We offer four classes of cruising memberships. Our Daysailing 24 entry level option provides access to the J24s and O'Day 240 for day trips. The next level up (Cruising 24) includes overnights on the same fleet. Cruising 30 members may take the 27-30 footers for day trips and overnights; Cruising 34 membership includes the Pierson 34 as well.

Cruising membership also includes access to our fleet of twenty seven Rhodes 19s and nine J22s. All cruising members will need to have a check-out and orientation for the boats they will be sailing; please see our Flag Ratings section, especially "Green Flag for Cruising Members," for more information.

We carefully limit our available cruising memberships to ensure that everyone has plenty of access. To learn more about pricing and availability, please email Jake Denney, our Adult Program Director, at jake@courageoussailing.org.

Are you planning on purchasing your own cruising sailboat (or simply sailing ours!) or chartering in the Caribbean someday?  Our US Sailing Basic Cruising certification course is the first step for those who dream of going beyond Boston Harbor.  In this course, we apply the fundamentals to bigger boats (up to 30’ in length) with outboard gasoline or inboard diesel engines, and introduce the tools needed to sail longer distances.  While big boats sail just like small boats, there are more systems to learn and techniques to master.  Twenty-four hours is not enough to prepare students for every challenge a cruising boat can present, but it is enough to develop comfort around big boat basics, so that you can crew competently or take the helm under the supervision of a more experienced captain.  Basic Cruising takes place over two consecutive weekends, Saturday/Sunday/Saturday/Sunday from 10-4:30 each day, with a half hour hour lunch break.  Maximum of 4 students.

Graduates may test for their US Sailing Basic Cruising certification. The additional experience will also typically help boost the Courageous skipper rating of students with solid Rhodes boathandling skills, enabling access to the outer harbor and Harbor Islands.

You can see the whole US Sailing Basic Cruising curriculum here.

Prerequisite: Basic Cruising or equivalent experience. Participants must be experienced in basic navigation and maneuvering cruising boats (24+ feet) under sail and power.

Once you start sailing the bigger boats, it’s hard to stop! And there’s always more to learn. Our Bareboat Cruising course is the next step. It picks up where Basic Cruising leaves off and covers topics such as navigation, anchoring, and heavy weather sailing in much greater detail. You’ll learn the things you need to know when chartering a sailboat: the various techniques used around the world for mooring and anchoring (e.g. stern and bow, fork, Mediterranean, Bahamian); controlling the boat under power with confidence; big boat docking techniques; provisioning; visiting the fuel and pump-out dock; VHF communication; and more. We will also take you through a tour of all the important boat systems, peering behind seat covers and into the bilge until you know exactly where everything is, what it does, and what to do (or who to call!) when it doesn’t work.  This course typically includes 3 days of sailing, two overnights at anchor or moored, and additional prep and debrief time.  Maximum of 4 students.

Upon passing the exam at the end of the course, your US SAILING Bareboat Cruising certification will signify that you have sufficient skills and knowledge to safely and confidently skipper an auxiliary powered cruising sailboat between 30’ and 45’ in length, in winds above 15 knots, within sight of land during daylight hours. This certification is widely respected and accepted by many sailboat charter companies in the US and other parts of the world.  Most Bareboat graduates are also qualified for a Courageous cruising membership.
