1979 Ground-breaking for the Clubhouse

Our mission is to make sailing and the ocean accessible to Cohasset’s citizens. We give special emphasis to starting them at a young age with a Junior Program beginning after the completion fo 4th grade.

We also make it affordable. This is Cohasset’s best value; made possible by low fees, our annual Lobsterfest fundraiser, the donations in time and financial contributions of our active trustees and members and benefactors such as South Shore Playhouse Trustees (Music Circus) and Talk of the Town caterers.

We have  a constantly updated and well-maintained fleet of sailboats: eleven Capri 14.2’s, six Club 420s, four lasers and seven O’pen Bics; and motorboats: one Pointer, 17′ and two  13′ launches. Plus, a Racing Team Van and trailers.
