They offer lessons and fun racing. Better they have a variety of cruising boats available to members at very low cost compared to owning a boat. This will let you try out some different boats to see what suits you. Better, these are based in different harbors in Mass and RI so you have some variety.

I agree, Carl. I am taking my cruising class out of Courageous in Charlestown. They have a few Tartans availble to members.

I have to pitch my some-times-employer, Boston Sailing Center, too.

No matter where you learn to cruise, you will be able to follow up by sailing some of the best cruising and racing waters in the world. We have sailed this area for fifteen years, love it but can't wait to retire and sail away.

Tell us about your yacht? And your dreams?
My dream boat is a J110. I saw a picture of one (in red) sailing the arctic. Out of my price range. Isn't that always the way.


I spend a lot of time in China. Do you know of any good Chinese made boats? I visit the Island of Hainan in the south china sea, but even though it is a vacation isle there is only one sailing club, and it's private.

Thanks Ziggy. I checked out the website. That is a very interesting concept. I will definitely look into it after I pass my basic cruising course.
