You're not imagining things — that's really the Charles River, not the solid ice block separating Boston and Cambridge that it's been for the last six months. Time to take advantage: find your sea legs starting with a 30-day intro course, then break out your Nantucket reds and upgrade to a full year membership to enjoy unlimited classes, boat usage, and event access.
Season starts Tue Apr 1. Community Boating Boston, 21 David Mugar Way, Boston (617-523-1038). Membership starts at $99.
