DBMS offers 85 different water and land based programs for all ages including sailing (30), rowing (25), ecology (16) and for the first time this year 3 new longer duration “Combo Classes” that combine two different options. From beginners to racers, windsurfers to kayakers, powerboat training to sailboat rentals, from sunrise erging to sunset stand up paddle boarding, there’s always something fun going on at DBMS. On-shore programs start with ecology programs for 3 year olds, boating safety courses, and a variety of seminars and guest speakers. Please enjoy these fabulous pictures of our sailors out on the Bay, taken by our resident photographer David Grossman.
In 2015, DBMS connected 2,131 students from 82 MA towns and 21 other states with Duxbury Bay. The broad reach and variety of our programs results in a wonderfully diverse group of students, with 38% residing outside of Duxbury. 71% of our students were children with an average age of 11. Our oldest adult was in his 80’s, so you’re never too young to join us! So please, come explore our guided selection of 2016 programs. And now, booking a course is simpler than ever with our new software. For help with our new online registration process, please read our FAQs.
As a non-profit DBMS is open to all and offers scholarship assistance to those in need. Price is not a barrier to participation.
