Hunter 216


Community Boating Center (CBC) has purchased a new fleet of Hunter 216 keelboats for its growing inner-city outreach, youth sailing, and adult training programs made possible by grants from The Champlin Foundations, and individual donors.

The new fleet of three boats will allow CBC to further grow its popular learn-to-sail programs with an ultra-comfortable, “high and dry” open cockpit design stabilized with a 500 lb. retractable keel. Racing amenities include an asymmetrical spinnaker and simple layout allowing for racing fun without complex rigging adjustments.

The boats will also sail in CBC’s “Renaissance Regatta”, a corporate benefit event featuring teams of CBC youth and adult sponsors working together in a series of fun challenges and races. The annual regatta is followed by a silent auction all in support of CBC youth outreach initiatives.

John O’Flaherty, Executive Director of CBC commented, “We are thrilled at the generosity of the Champlin Foundations in enabling Community Boating to bring these extremely safe, stable, and exciting keelboats to the Providence waterfront.”

Community Boating Center (CBC) is a nonprofit, 501c3 recreational organization offering all members of the community an opportunity to enjoy boating. Located in India Point Park, CBC provides youth outreach, sailing lessons and affordable access to the Providence waterfront. Gifts of cash or property to CBC may be treated as charitable donations for Federal Tax purposes.
