Bourne Community Boating

Off-Grid Technology Power Project

Bourne Community Boating provides an opportunity to people of all ages, abilities and background to enrich their lives through on-the-water educational and recreational experiences. Bourne Community Boating piloted a solar electric system to power a new electric outboard motor plus all hand-held electronics to reduce emissions and reliance on the grid. The program also served as an educational program for Bourne’s students, members, and the public.


Marine science instruction is a key part of Bourne Community Boating’s Summer Sailing School curriculum. All beginner, advanced beginner, and intermediate sailors spend one day per week of their sailing program studying various marine science topics in the Belly Biology Program.
