Member Benefits & Events
Your membership at Courageous provides much more than simply the freedom to sail on Boston Harbor and the surrounding waters whenever you like during the regular season. Members also enjoy affordable sailing clinics, member barbecues and parties, regattas, night sails, discounted full courses, deals on sailing gear, and much more.
Camping trips are back in 2012! Check back soon for dates and contact us to sign-up early.
From May through September, we race each night, Monday through Thursday. For 2012, Mondays mean J/22 team racing, with a rotating schedule of fleet, team and match racing. Tuesdays are our night for Advanced Rhodes 19 fleet racing, Wednesdays our J/22 skippers can try their luck against the big boats in PHRF racing, and Thursdays are our open Rhodes 19 fleet racing series, complete with chalk-talks, on the water coaching and post-race debriefs. When the days get shorter in the fall, we'll switch from Thursday evenings to Saturday afternoons for our R-19 racing.
Feeling rusty? Stop in on alternate Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10:30am - 1:30pm for three hours of group instruction (for just $25).
A great Courageous tradition. This season, every Thursday, after racing. Or on other days, the grill is available to members, so help yourself and have a picnic on Pier 4!
Every month. The views from Pier 4 make it a great place to spend an evening. These are a great way to meet your fellow members, and make new friends to go sailing with.
New Sailor Nights
Every two weeks. Come down, meet other members, share what you know. Let's keep the community in community sailing!
New Racer Nights
Every two weeks. Come down, get paired up with experienced racers and find out what all the fuss is about on the race course.
Harbor Island Tows
Twice monthly, we cut out the commute for Harbor Island-bound members with Saturday morning tows. Whether sailing alone or as a flotilla, we'll get you past the airport fast so you have more time to explore. Skippers must be approved by Dave or Cha.
A full moon means night sailing! Meet at Courageous for a cook out on the pier, rig your running lights, and set off for a breathtaking sail under the skyline of Boston. Boats are restricted to the inner harbor.
Discounts on Courses
Our courses are the best deal around. For 2011 we are offering a full selection of the courses you have been wanting and asking for, taught by the highest quality, US Sailing certified instructors. No matter where you are in your sailing career, there's always more to learn. Do yourself a favor this year and sign up early. Members get an extra 10% off our already great prices.
