Advanced Rhodes 19 Racing

Want to mix it up with some of the best racers around? This competitive fleet attracts our top Frostbiters, as well as elite racers from various area fleets.

Extensive racing experience and an in-depth knowledge of the racing rules are required to skipper; anybody is welcome to crew. Season prizes will be awarded.

Ahhh, Boston winter. You could curl up somewhere warm, perhaps enjoying a toasty fire and a hot chocolate...OR you could join us for the best racing of the year!

Every Saturday from November through March, Courageous hosts Frostbiting, winter racing in 24 Rhodes 19s. Our fleet features top notch competition, a commitment to sportsmanship, and 24 evenly matched Rhodes on the line each week. Best of all, our Frostbite racers are supporting free and low-cost programming for kids, while enjoying the great breeze, good company, and quality race management that are the hallmarks of Frostbiting at Courageous. The cost is $1,200 per boat for a full share. Registration is currently open to returning racers only (Early Bird discounted price of $1,150/boat), and will be opened to newcomers after October 11.

If you are interested in joining the fleet (either as skipper or crew), please contact Jen Bodde, Acting Adult Program Director at Skippers must have extensive racing experience and a solid understanding of the current Racing Rules of Sailing.
