Bourne Community Boating, Inc, (BCB) was founded in 2006 and its mission is: “To provide an opportunity to people of all ages, abilities and background to enrich their lives through on-the-water educational and recreational experiences.”
BCB especially tries to reach the year-round, full-time resident youth population of Bourne, many of whom would not have had the opportunity to learn to sail without BCB’s programs. BCB works to introduce these students to sailing, boating and marine science in a friendly, fun and inclusive environment.
BCB’s primary program is an 8-week long youth summer sailing and marine science school. In addition, BCB offers Adult Sailing, Adaptive Sailing, Paddleboarding, and Open Sailing. BCB won the US Sailing Community Sailing Council award for Best New Program in 2007. In 2012, BCB was sanctioned as a US Sailing Community Sailing center, and in 2013 BCB became a US Powerboating Training Center.
