Sailing in Marblehead, MA

Marblehead, Massachusetts is the birthplace of American Navy and home to one of the most beautiful harbors in New England. Marblehead (located just 20 miles north of Boston) offers a quaint New England Village that wraps around a picturesque harbor.

A Mecca for sailors, Marblehead draws enthusiasts from around the world to its waters. The harbor fills to its capacity in the summertime with upwards of 2,000 sailboats.

On Saturdays, around noon, you can catch a regatta race from one of Marblehead’s great parks. Fort Sewall and Chandler Hovey Park offers the best views to catch these races.

Local tip: Meet up with a local Captain and crew on a sailboat for a day. You will get a front-seat view and a great workout.

Head over to Maddies Sail Loft afterwards to calm your sore muscles with one of their legendary pint-size cocktails. Careful: 2 drinks at this local establishment will transform a scruffy looking sailor into Brad Pitt.
