Boston University Sailing Pavilion

Your gateway to the Charles River is at the Boston University Sailing Pavilion! The Sailing Pavilion is open to the BU Community as well as the general public for recreational sailing and other boating. All are invited to join our sailing program by taking an instructional sailing class or purchasing a sailing card. Spend some time sailing this summer season and experience the profound effect that spending time outdoors and on the water can have on your mind, body, and soul.

Contact the Sailing Pavilion at 617-353-9307.

To access the Sailing Pavilion: Use pedestrian bridge behind law school to access the Esplanade.  At the bottom of the stairs continue straight (West) and the pavilion is just before the BU Bridge.
