What You'll Get
Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as marrying a video game, naming a dog a swearword, or rebroadcasting NFL games without the written consent of the league. Go above the law with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a two-hour sailing lesson or cruise for up to three from Courageous Sailing Center in Charlestown (a $190 value).
Seasoned instructors captain Courageous Sailing Center's fleet of 19-foot Rhodes sailboats through Boston Harbor, initiating students in the ways of the sea during private, two-hour sailing lessons. Seafarers learn the ropes of steering and operating sailboats, confidently taking the wheel under instructor guidance to navigate the waves without trying to saddle up a whale. For a relaxing evening, couples or trios can opt to let the captain steer while they enjoy the scenic, salty waterscape.
Courageous Sailing Center, a U.S. Sailing–certified organization and beacon of community service, employs the sea to support at-risk youth, developing teens' personal responsibility, problem-solving skills, and teamwork through summer programs. See the website's FAQ page for more information about this Groupon or ransom demands for the other 23 letters of the alphabet.
