Community Boating Center invites sailors and non-sailors to help kick off the 2008 season with friends, family, and CBC members for a “Discover Sailing” day of family fun on the Providence waterfront. Open to the general public, the waterfront party will run from 1:00 - 7:00 PM with food, fun, free sailing, and more. There is a $5.00 suggested donation at the door with all proceeds benefiting CBC youth sailing. Additionally, CBC will host a wine tasting event from 7:30-9:00 pm.

John O’Flaherty, Executive Director of CBC commented, “Come see our new fleet of keel boats, enjoy the waterfront, and meet all the great people who make CBC shine — Cheers!”
