Piers Park Sailing Center - Jeffries Point - Airport: Introduction-to-Sailing Lesson or Cruise for Two to Four People from Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston

Learning to sail bestows people with stylish windblown hair and the ability to talk to clams before putting them in chowder. Reap boating benefits with today’s Groupon to Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston. Choose between the following options:

  • For $35, you get a two-hour introduction-to-sailing lesson (a $75 value).
  • For $89, you get a two-hour sunset or vacation cruise for two to four people (a $69 value/person, up to a $276 value).

The nonprofit Piers Park Sailing Center reconnects displaced landlubbers with their watery motherland with year-round recreational and educational opportunities. With the city's glistening skyline as a backdrop, beginners learn sail-wrangling fundamentals in Boston Harbor during a two-hour course that sidesteps more advanced sailing skills, such as proper etiquette when asking sea serpents for directions. During the two-hour sunset or vacation cruise, an experienced staff member guides guests in gaggles of two to four around the historical harbor, pointing out notable sights and improvising romantic Boston-themed arias. In addition to lessons and cruises, Piers Park provides a selection of yearly programs and scholarships to introduce sailing to at-risk youth and people living with disabilities.

Piers Park Sailing Center

Bobby Martin, now the executive director at the nonprofit Piers Park Sailing Center, grew up with a sail line in his hand, touring the Delaware River and the waters surrounding Kent Island and St. Michael's in Maryland. He always knew sailing was in his blood, as he was raised in a family of boat builders and America's Cup competitors. He followed this passion throughout school and into a racing team at Boston University and earned a position as captain by his senior year. The passion for sailing shows through at Piers Park Sailing Center, which train sailors of all ages and ability levels including underserved youth and disabled students.
