Gallery: Hangman’s Island, Boston Harbor

The starting point for the sailing region, Hangman’s Island is a bump of sand in Boston Harbor.  The gibbet has not been seen there for 300 years.  A chart of Boston Harbor (virtual) is located there for the beginning stages of a pirate treasure hunt! (Shh!)

In addition, small rideable sailing craft can be spotted circling the islands, their soft sails glowing in the sun.  This minor traffic is in addition to the physical sailing and powerboats that are on hand for exploring the harbor!

A compass rose has been added to the charts so visitors can try their hand at converting magnetic to true North, using variation and landmarks to locate position as real navigators do.
