Charlestown

Our Charlestown facility operates year-round and houses our executive, administrative and program staff. This location processes registrations and leads our fundraising and program development efforts. The Courageous Boathouse is located on Pier 4 in the Charlestown Navy Yard, a short walk from North Station, the Bus Route 93 Navy Yard/Gate 4 bus stop, or the Long Warf F4 water shuttle that departs near the Blue Line's Aquarium T station.

Jamaica Pond

Courageous is pleased to offer youth and adult sailing on Jamaica Pond in cooperation with the Boston Department of Parks and Recreation. The summer youth program at Jamaica Pond is open to Boston residents only. The Jamaica Pond Boathouse is located at the intersection of the Jamaica Way and Pond Street, a one and one-half mile walk from the Orange Line's Green Street T Stop, and is also on bus routes 39, 41 and 48.
