Join Community Boating for the 2015 Season!
Summer is always wonderful on the Charles River basin with sailboats, kayaks, windsurfs, and paddleboarders zipping along. Our hours of operations for the summer are 3PM to sunset on weekdays, and 9AM to sunset on weekends and holidays. The hours for weekdays will be 1PM to sunset starting Monday, August 24th. Join us for our daily free orientations for more information about all that we offer.
Please help us make progress towards raising $20,000 for our UAP Challenge, sponsored by EF Education First to benefit our Universal Access Program (UAP) Endowment Fund. For every mile sailed with a pink EF sail until Friday, August 21st, $5 will be donated, up to 4,000 miles sailed. The top sailor from each program will win a Family Package of 4 tickets to 4 Wachusett Festivals, to be announced on Saturday, August 22nd at our All Boats on the Water Day.
Adult Program News and Updates
The Adult Program will close early on Thursday, July 30th at 7PM for our CBI Dock Party to benefit CBI’s youth and accessible sailing programs. More information about the CBI Dock party is available here.
The Special Olympics Massachusetts State Championship Regatta will be on Saturday, August 1st from 9AM-1PM. We anticipate that we will use most of the keelboat fleet of Sonars and Rhodes.
Construction will continue for the next several weeks in the Main Bay and the Function Room to replace the handicap lift. As you can see, there are temporary classroom spaces outdoors under the tents and usage of the back classroom and alternative classrooms will be necessary. Creating access for all our users to all parts of the boathouse is vitally important to us; therefore, we ask for everyone’s patience, understanding, and tolerance as this project is underway.
Free Sunrise Yoga on the Dock with Athleta
Join us for FREE Sunrise Yoga on the Dock offered weekly throughout the summer on Thursdays at 6:30AM. We have mats available for use, but please bring your own mat if you can. Start off your morning feeling refreshed and energized. **NO YOGA CLASS ON JULY 23RD.**
