OPEN HOUSE SPECIALS! Discounts on Courses, Memberships, and Macro Programs through Monday, May 1st, including $100 off our award-winning 26-hour Learn to Sail Course

As a member of the Boston Sailing Center, you'll enjoy more time on the water than most boat owners - and at far less cost. Membership entitles you to unlimited sailing during the regular season with no additional cost for boat usage.

Here's how membership at the Boston Sailing Center works:

  • We have five levels of membership: Daysailing, Mid-Range, and Cruising 30, 35, and 40. 
  • Pay one membership fee for boat use for the entire season. There is no rental charge each time you sail. If you sign up after the season has begun, your membership is good until the same date in next year's season.
  • Each level of membership adds larger boats, but also includes the ones from the lower levels. So if you are a Cruising 40 member you have access to 75 boats ranging in size from 23 to 40 feet
  • If you are new to the BSC, you will take a short check out sail and navigation test with one of our instructors before using the boats at no extra charge. 
  • If you have completed a course at the BSC, you are qualified for the corresponding membership, but will just sit to write the corresponding navigation test. 
  • You can make advanced boat reservations online or "last minute" reservations by calling the BSC or using our online reservation system. 
  • When you arrive to go sailing, stop in the office to check the weather and pick up the key to the boat.
  • When you're done, drop off the key and note any maintenance issues in the log.
