Women on the Water


This program is designed to give women of all ages and from all walks of life the opportunity to experience sailing in both a racing and non-racing capacity.

Whether you used to sail, are currently sailing, trying to learn from your partner or have watched from ashore and always wanted to give it a try NOW IS THE TIME! Build your sailing knowledge and lets empower females to get on the water.

Be sure to be prepared with the proper attire, closed toed shoes, sun protection, and a water bottle. Must be able to swim unaided without a PFD.
