Corporate Outing FAQs
An outing is a three-hour sailing experience. We provide the instructors and the equipment (sailboats and lifejackets). The experience includes an on-land intro to sailing, on-the-water instruction, and some fun races.
A good attitude and some outdoor gear! We recommend a lightweight waterproof jacket, sneakers, sunscreen and a water bottle. Hats and sunglasses are great, but make sure you have a croakie or strap to keep them from falling overboard. Please wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting wet, and a change of clothes – on a windy day, you might get hit with some spray!
The #1 requirement to participate is a good attitude and a willingness to try new things. Anyone who can move around without assistance in their everyday life will be able to participate with ease. There is no experience necessary, and there are a variety of jobs on board so everyone can be matched with a job that fits their abilities. If you have someone on your team who may need special assistance, please let us know! We can work with you to ensure that everyone is able to participate.
We do not cancel outings for rain, so please be prepared! We reserve the right to cancel the outing if there is a safety concern such as strong winds or lightning, and we will work with you to reschedule.
Yes! Snacks can be brought to be consumed either before or after sailing. If you opt to add-on a post-sailing party, you can bring in food or have the event catered and alcohol can be served by a licensed bartender with the appropriate permitting.
We are on the Charles River Esplanade between the Longfellow Bridge and the Hatch Shell. Due to our location on the park, we do not have on site parking. There are parking garages in the area, but we recommend taking public transportation if possible. The boathouse is conveniently located close to the Charles/MGH station on the MBTA’s Red Line. The footbridge that crosses Storrow Drive linking Charles Circle and the Esplanade affords beautiful views of the River and leads you directly to our front door.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions, we are happy to answer them! You can call the boathouse at 617-523-1038, or email [email protected]
