LOCATION: ROWES WHARF, BOSTON
The Boston Harbor Sailing Club's principal location is Anchorage A, Boston Inner Harbor between the Aquarium and Rowes Wharf, directly in front of the Harbor Towers condominium complex. The Club does not use an office facility. 2 Club launches pick up members and students from the Odyssey dock 8 at Gate B next to the Rotunda on Rowes Wharf (go through the arch, rotunda is to the right). There is a radio call box at the launch dock pre-set to Channel 10 to hail the club launches, meet instructors or club personnel. Launches also pick up and drop off from the Barking Crab Marina behind the restaurant next to the old Northern Avenue pedestrian bridge, a funky popular dining spot for apres-sail. Public restrooms are available at the ferry terminal behind the Boston Harbor Hotel. Inexpensive parking is available nearby.
