COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends, Supporters and Community Members,

We can’t change the wind – but we can adjust our sails…

We are currently accepting applications for adult memberships.
Adult open (recreational) boating runs from from 6/06* – 10/11, 4-7 pm weekdays, 1-7 pm weekends.

*Pending Reopening RI Phase II approval and opening of Providence Parks parking areas.

We are currently accepting applications for our summer camps.
There has never been a more important time to offer youth healthy, outdoor activities to relieve stress, socialize, and provide much-needed fun, learning structure and exercise. Sailing and paddling are inherently social-distancing. Enhanced with new rules and procedures based upon best practices, we look forward to opening 6/29 under the guidance and approval of our greatly appreciated state and local leadership.

We need your help! Please share our many healthy, summer outdoor youth sailing and paddling camps and lesson opportunities with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues with kids (and adults) looking to get outside, have fun, and enjoy an Ocean State adventure right in your own backyard.

Although CBC is not offering after-school programs at this time, we are closely monitoring our charter school and PPSD partners’ plans and will do our best to keep you posted of our schedules for the start up of the spring and/or summer sailing seasons.

Additionally, to ensure the safety of all our employees and due to the requirements set forth by local and state municipalities regarding public gatherings we are suspending CBC facility rentals and events until further notice.

We will continue to “adjust our sails” and update you as this current public health crisis evolves. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Stay safe and healthy,

John O’Flaherty
Executive Director
