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."
