Community Boating Inc. in Boston is one of the oldest sailing programs in the United States. Joseph Lee founded the program in 1936 as a way to keep local West End children off the city streets in the summer. In 1993, the Community Sailing Council of US SAILING honored Community Boating with an award for our decades of ‘Distinguished Service and Performance’ to the public. Charles Zechel is the executive director of the program and tells us about how to join, what the program offers, and much more. We also talk to Charles about his experiences with blind sailing.

FurledSails.com Podcast #77 George Buehler
George Buehler, self-taught yacht designer has a great philosophy on boats, he says "I like all kinds of boats; there are no absolutes I've come to realize, and more important, no boat is 'practical'. So let's not pretend; a boat is a toy, a fantasy, a thing to have fun with." He helped build a replica of the 110' schooner America and is the also the designer of the Diesel Duck. George is the author of Buehlers Backyard Boatbuilding and The Troller Yacht Book.
