About the book:
Community Boating, Inc. (CBI), now in its seventh decade as a public
community sailing program in Boston, has taught several generations of
the city’s youth how to sail on the Charles River Basin. At the start of the
program, it was Joseph Lee Jr., a lifelong proponent of outdoor recreation
and public service, who espoused the idea that all children, rich and poor,
should know how to handle a sailboat not just for their own enjoyment
but also for the attainment of useful life skills, like learning to cooperate
with others on and off the water and taking responsibility for their work.
This book offers a glimpse at how Community Boating, Inc., is achieving
its mission of “Sailing for All.”
Anthony M. Sammarco, author of over 70 books on Boston, has
outlined the history of Community Boating, Inc., and with CBI’s
help, he has selected many fascinating and never-before-published
photographs from the nonprofit organization’s archives, as well as from
