Course Description

Community Boatbuilding and Courageous Sailing are teaming up to host the perfect summer vacation week on Jamaica Pond. It's a week of building things and being active outdoors. Young students will build their very own remote-controlled sailboats called "footies" or wooden skateboards in our woodshop within historic Jamaica Pond boathouse. And at the end of the week, you can take home your masterpiece! Then, they will get to learn basic sailing theory, row, raise and strike the sails, and steer their very own boat under the watchful eyes of our certified sailing instructors. There will even be visits from an aquatic animal specialist to introduce students to the creatures that live in Jamaica Pond.

Space is limited! Book now!

J/22 Upgrade - $100

 

The PayPal cart will open in a new window, however you can continue shopping and items will automatically be added.

 

The J/22 Upgrade gives you access to our fleet of nine J/22s, in addition to the Rhodes 19s, for just $100 more. While we all love the Rhodes 19, there comes a time when you want to sail in a higher gear. The J/22 is a fast and highly responsive keelboat, built for speed and performance.  You must pass an on-the-water J/22 checkout in order to sail them.

Guest Pass - $50

 

The PayPal cart will open in a new window, however you can continue shopping and items will automatically be added.

 

When combined with a membership, a guest pass allows you to take as many guests sailing with you as many times as you’d like for a one-time fee of $50/season. Generally, a Rhodes-19 or J/22 can fit one skipper and 3-4 guests safely at one time.

Damage Waiver - $50

The PayPal cart will open in a new window, however you can continue shopping and items will automatically be added.

 

Members who purchase the optional damage waiver are released from financial responsibility for physical damage to Courageous boats in their care and custody, so long as it is not caused by the Member's negligence or intentional conduct, violation of the Courageous Sailing Agreement & General Release and Membership Terms & Conditions, failure to stay clear of other boats and obstacles, or running aground.  No waiver of damage liability shall be effective until the damage waiver payment is received.  Please note that the damage waiver does not waive financial responsibility for damage or injury to other boats, property or people, towing services, or lost equipment.  Please read our Sailing Agreement & General Release and Membership Terms & Conditions to fully understand our policies.

One Day Membership

Regular Price: $95 + a one-time $50 checkout fee

 

The PayPal cart will open in a new window, however you can continue shopping and items will automatically be added.

 

Our One-Day membership option, similar to a boat rental, is perfect for experienced sailors who are looking for a little time on the water without a longer commitment. In order to take out one of our Rhodes 19s or J22s, we'll need to schedule a quick on-the-water checkout (including a crew overboard recovery drill and docking under sail) with one of our instructors, which you may do in advance or on the day you go sailing. A One-Day membership gives you access to Boston's inner harbor, and can last for a few hours or the whole day--it's up to you!

If you'd like to purchase a One-Day Membership, email frontdesk@courageoussailing.org to schedule your checkout and reserve a boat. 

One Month Membership

Regular Price: $300

Holiday Special Through December 31: $255 - 15% OFF!

 

The PayPal cart will open in a new window, however you can continue shopping and items will automatically be added.

 

One-Month memberships make sense if you’ll be away for much of the season, or aren’t sure you want to commit to a full membership. Choose any 30-day period and sail all you want!
