Boston Harbor Island Moorings



Take advantage of everything the Boston Harbor Islands have to offer! The public moorings at Peddock, Georges, Spectacle, and Gallops Island (no access to Gallops Island) are now avialable to make reservations. Make your reservation for a mooring at one of the island today through Dockwa! While any boat can tie up to the mooring you will need a dinghy to get ashore, there will not be a shuttle, a dock pick up and drop off is available at most islands.

Eight Bells: Wade Edwards, Boston Sailing Center Director

Our Director, Wade Edwards passed away peacefully on July 4th, 2016 after a battle with cancer.

Wade lived his life with a spirit of possibility; in 2007 he combined his lifelong passion for sailing with his business acumen and purchased the Boston Sailing Center (BSC). As the managing director he tirelessly sought to improve operational efficiency and, above all, the quality of the member experience. BSC, on Lewis Wharf in Boston, is home to 400 members, over 75 sailboats, and countless sailing students of all abilities. Wades positive spirit, management savvy, and love of sailing had a remarkable impact on BSC over the past 9 years. Wade served not only as leader, but an active member of the BSC community. BSC staff and members cherished his sense of humor and enthusiastic participation in Tuesday night summer racing, winter Frostbite racing, and countless events with BSC members and staff. He was deeply loved and respected by the BSC community, who knew him as a true gentleman on and off the water.


  • Frostbite Wrap Up

    Weather permitting, we film all of our races. Not only is it a fun thing to watch at the post-race gathering, but it is a great tool for seeing how your crew work was at a mark rounding, or how you started with the rest of the fleet. Here are just a few races from recent years, but you can find even more on our YouTube channel.
