The Charles River is one of the best dinghy sailing venues in the country. The lower basin is home to the Massachusetts Bay League, Community Boating, MIT Sailing Pavilion, and Harvard Sailing. MIT hosts more intercollegiate regattas than any other school in the country by a factor of two every year. Not only does MIT develop skills with more novice level events but it is a highly sought after host site for New England and National Championships as well. In addition to collegiate service, MIT hosts the Mass State Open High School Championship as well as Special Olympics and the Charles River Open Team Race Regatta. The CRO is the largest team race event held in North America with entries ranging from 32 to 48 squads and has completed more than 490 races in one weekend. Our facility is known as the birthplace of collegiate sailing. Built in 1936, it is the first facility dedicated to collegiate sailing in the nation. MIT has hosted 19 collegiate national championships, many more than any other school. The MIT Sailing Pavilion staff is very experienced in handling large numbers of sailors and large-scale events. With a reputation for fair and efficient race management, the staff is well known to never run races in sketchy and unfair wind conditions. It is difficult to imagine a more experienced team to host the ISSA Championship.
