Racing at Courageous

Courageous has a very active racing culture. From beginner Rhodes 19 racing to advanced and highly competitive dinghy racing in our new Laser fleet, there is something here for the racer in everyone. Members are encouraged to sign up for weekly races during the summer to hone their skills and maybe prepare for frostbiting in the winter. In 2012 we started a pilot program to match race our J/22's and we are pleased to bring back this format of racing to our members in 2013. But you don't have to be a member to participate in our racing series; we are always happy to see new faces on the race course. Get in touch with Jen Bodde the interim Adult Program Director if you are interested in racing or membership.

Our Fleets

Rhodes 19 - Designed by Phillip Rhodes in the post war era, the Rhodes 19 remains to this day a popular day sailor, instructon platform and club racer. Courageous has a fleet of 24 that are raced year round by everyone from first time racers to die-hard frostbiters.

Laser - A popular boat at every club around the world and now Courageous has a fleet of 12. Just about every sailor worth their salt has proved their worth at some point in this Olympic class boat.

J/22 - Courageous has a fleet of nine J/22's on our dock. A couple of them regularly compete in the Wednesday night PHRF races hosted by Constitution Yacht Club and the entire fleet turns out every year to race in the Flip Flop Regatta. In 2013 Courageous will bring back J/22 match racing.

High School - Boston Public High Schools and Boston Latin practice and race in our fleet of Club 420's in the spring and fall.

Frostbite - For the harder-core racer inside you. Despite taking place in the middle of a New England winter, this is our most popular racing series. Every Saturday from mid November through early April 24 Rhodes 19's can be seen racing in the best wind of the year on Boston Harbor.
