Courageous Challenge Charity Regatta

CLICK HERE FOR THE '09 FLYER
& REGISTRATION FORM!

May 18, June 1, 8, 15, and 22
6 pm to sunset

For the past thirteen years, the Courageous Challenge has been our most popular and successful corporate fundraiser.

What is the Courageous Challenge?

The Courageous Challenge is a corporate regatta and teambuilding event. By participating, your company is supporting Courageous' free programs for Boston youth, where over 10,000 children have learned to sail over the past eighteen years. Learn more about our youth programs!

How does the Challenge work?

The Challenge Regatta runs for four consecutive Monday nights (June 1, 8, 15, and 22 ), with a prepartory night of sailing and instruction on May 18.

The first night of the regatta is a "Racing Clinic". The evening includes practice races from 6pm to sunset. We will have coaches on hand to work with you on and off the water, all followed by fun awards and video coverage immediately following the races.

The next four nights are when the competition heats up! Each team races with their respective crews, and Gourmet Caterers provides a light buffet on the Courageous pier at sunset.
On the final night one young sailor from the Courageous Advanced Racing Program will join your team. The Challenge culminates with an awards ceremony and farewell barbecue.

No sailing experience is necessary to compete in the Courageous Challenge. If you request, our experienced and knowledgeable instructor staff will be on hand to show you everything you need to know. Also, keep in mind that the two to three people in your sailboat can change from week to week, this allows for more people to take part in the fun. But many teams have the same people racing each week.
