Sail Boston 2017 - BSC Restrictions

Sail Boston 2017 and a fleet of tall ships are taking over the harbor this June! This does impact the Sailing Center a bit, and members should be conscious to restrictions and a traffic pattern. There will be no daysailing this week. 

Boston’s history stretches beyond the land to the sea. Boston has a wealth of maritime history—both past and present. Bostonians welcome crews and cadets from all over the world to their harbor on a continual basis as part of the Visiting Ship Program and are gearing up to greet the return of the Tall Ship fleet for Sail Boston 2017®!
