Sailing Along Boston's Historic Waterfront and Beyond
Founded in 1977, the Boston Sailing Center has become the most popular sailing school/sailing club in New England.
About Us
Courses For Every Sailing Level
Our commitment to teaching sets us apart. Over 400 students learn with us every year, making the BSC one of the top adult sailing schools in the country. Yet classes on the water are always small, so you'll receive highly personalized instruction.
