What Types of Boats do You Sail?
Our current fleet consists of a broad range of boats designed to make sailing
fun and affordable for our varied instructional classes and membership interests.
CBC instructors will evaluate the skills and experience of each student, considering
factors like size and agility, in determining which boat and group is most appropriate
CBC instructors typically teach onboard beginner boats until the students
have progressed to a point where the instructor can teach from a safety/powerboat.
Advanced classes allow instructors to encourage sailing independence by teaching
from safety/powerboats almost exclusively.
If you would like to donate a boat to CBC, please contact the Director at
401-454-7245 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Boats on our list are always needed and welcome!

Our new sit-on-top kayaks offer great stability, ease of use, and minimal training to get you or your family out on the water fast. With no enclosed cockpit, paddlers do not need to learn the “Eskimo roll” or worry about pumping out accumulated water after an accidental flip. Sit-on-tops are the preferred choice of beginner paddling programs.
The new 14’ RS Quest was developed specifically as a training boat. It features a self-draining cockpit and a super-stable hull to give maximum security and safety. It feels considerably bigger than its size with a large cockpit for up to four, great for training and family sailing.
The Hunter 140 is a fabulous family day sailer. The wide beam keeps it stable
and dry while its planing hull allows it to really move. Parents will appreciate
the unsinkability and ease of sailing for children, and will love the boats
ability to really perform for themselves.
The Laser Pico is a fun, durable, confidence inspiring, roto-molded boat that can be sailed by everyone. It’s ideal for entry-level sailors and is equipped with a removable jib and reefing main sail for easy rigging.
The Hobie Wave is an easy- to-sail, easy-to-rig speedster that will have you smiling. Fun for the family and exciting for the juniors while forgiving enough for the newly initiated, the Hobie Wave is the ideal must-go-sailing-now catamaran.
The 14’ Laser is the most popular single-handed, one-design dinghy. The Laser class was built on the philosophy that the sailor wins the race, not the boat. The Laser Radial is the perfect boat for smaller sailors who dont quite have the size to handle a full Laser rig. The Radial uses a standard Laser hull and blades, but a smaller sail.
The DaySailer is a staple performer for instructional and recreational sailing.
Over 12,000 DaySailers have been built to date. Sailing with a unique balance
of speed and stability, the DaySailer combines ease of sailing with the challenge
of racing. It is durable, stable, seaworthy, easy to trailer, and easy to rig,
launch & sail.
The 22 Hunter 216 is truly a fun boat to sail. Whether you are a novice
or a seasoned skipper, you will appreciate this stable, forgiving, and innovative
sport boat. The large cockpit offers crew comfort and allows easy access to
effortless hydraulic lifting of a 500 lb. swing keel. Due to fully booked scheduling, H216 keelboats are used in our youth outreach and adult training programs only.
“Sundance” joins CBC as the flagship for use in our inner-city outreach programs and adult keelboat classes. This new “outdoor classroom” was generously donated by CBC supporters who recognized the potential of the vessel to change the lives of CBC youth sailors.
CBC continually updates our fleet. Boat donations to CBC’s 501(c)3 non-profit program are tax-deductable to the extent provided by law.
