It’s time to go sailing!

A Courageous membership means that you can take one of our boats out for a sail on Boston Harbor whenever you’d like*.  Courageous offers a variety of memberships to fit all schedules, skill levels, and boat preferences -- check out the different options, and see which one works best for you.  Membership also includes much more: racing, barbeques, moonlight sails, Harbor Island camping trips, fireworks-watching parties, and discounts on courses.  As a Courageous member, you’ll be a part of an enthusiastic, inclusive community of sailors...and you’ll be helping Courageous provide free and low-cost sailing opportunities for Boston kids.

 

*Skippers must pass an on-the-water check-out and written test in order to sail a Courageous boat without an instructor.  Our sailing area extends out around the Harbor Islands for qualified members.  Courageous is open noon - sunset on weekdays and 10 - sunset on weekends and holidays, May 1 through October 31.  Boat availability is usually plentiful, but is not guaranteed. A small additional fee may be charged for some member activities.
