Women’s Sailing


2014-05-26 WSS posterThe 22nd Annual
Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar
September 20-21, 2014
We offer you a fun, relaxing, educational and inspiring weekend in our workshops and on the water with us! Be a lucky winner at our exciting raffle which includes valuable and useful sailing prizes!

Island Yacht Club’s Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar was created and founded by Mary Quigley and Linda Newland after they attended a women’s sailing seminar down south. They thought, “We need a seminar in Northern California, too!” – where women could learn about sailing from other women. Women’s Sailing Seminar is made possible by the generous donations of instructors, boat owners and sponsors. Each participant’s printed program will include details about our contributors, sponsors and volunteers, to whom we extend a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU!

WSS

Have a great weekend and...“Capture the Power!”

Additional donations are gladly accepted and will help us put on this seminar every year. Registration is first-come, first-served.
