Bourne Community Boating, Inc, (BCB) was founded in 2006 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 is one of the less than 50 schools officially accredited by the US’s Community Sailing Organization, and is also a licensed Powerboating Training Center.

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 which students learn in, on, and around sailboats of all sizes.  In addition, BCB also offers Adult Sailing, Adaptive Sailing, Paddleboarding, and Open Sailing.
