Dive Into Local Waters
Why settle for simply swimming this summer?

They don't call us the Ocean State for nothing. Rhode Island has a whopping 400 miles of coastline – and that's not even counting all the access to water through rivers and lakes. Make a splash this summer by trying some new water sports. Your tan (and your newly defined muscles) will thank you.

Boating and Sailing

Sailing has come far from its humble roots and is now seen as a rich man’s sport. Providence’s volunteer-led Community Boating Center works to change that image one sailor at a time by offering affordable sailing lessons to children and adults. Membership (just $25 for kids ages 8-15, $195 for adults) includes free use of the center’s fleet of 60 boats; group recreational sailing; paddling and kayak outings; as well as basic boating instruction. 109 India Street, Providence. 401-454-7245,


Community Boating Center (CBC) is a non-profit, 501c3 recreational organization offering all members of the community an opportunity to sail and paddle. Located in India Point Park, CBC provides 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.
