Community Boating’s award-winning Adult Program offers public access to watersport for everyone from novice sailors to national champions. Our affordable memberships include world-class instruction, sailing, windsurfing, paddling, and more in the heart of the city. There is no better way to experience Boston.

Novices can learn to captain a sailboat with just two short classes. For improving sailors, we have intermediate and advanced instruction, volunteer opportunities, racing, spinnakers, and night sails, as well as high performance keelboats, dinghies, and windsurfs. Experienced sailors can fast-track to the appropriate level and get on the water right away.

Whether you’re looking for a new hobby, outdoor adventure, friendly competition, or a peaceful sunset cruise, come join our welcoming community on the picturesque Charles River Basin!

All-access Memberships (include classes & equipment): $255-425
Boating Passes (include limited classes & equipment): $99-255


New members should continue to our Getting Started page and/or come by the boathouse for an orientation. Current members can sign up for classes on our member portal, review educational materials, and learn more about racing and volunteer teaching. We hope to see you on the water!
