Jim Davidian

After 30 years as a member, Jim took over the helm of the Boston Sailing Center in 2018. During those 30 years as a member, Jim raced regularly on Tuesday nights, taught lessons, captained BVI charters with members, and even assisted with engine maintenance and repair.

Having grown up in Boston, he has always had a love of the sea. As a child, Jim spent his summers in Marion sailing on Buzzard’s Bay. It wasn’t until he joined the Sailing Center that he began to appreciate so many other aspects of sailing – racing, cruising, navigating, and meeting people with the same passion. The Boston Sailing Center has always been a special place for Jim and he looks forward to sharing that with our community of sailors.
