Become a Sponsor WSS 2016

      Summer 2016

Dear Valued Sponsor,

Island Yacht Club, a non-profit all volunteer organization, is excited to once again host the Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar, now in it’s 24th year. Upward of 130 women participants and instructors are expected to gather for this two day seminar held September 24-25, 2016.

Classes are taught on and off the water, topics tailored to the skills of our attendees, from the first time sailor to advanced racers. This event is unique to Northern California and to date is the only seminar designed exclusively for women, taught by women. We had a most impressive turn out in 2015, participants from all over the San Francisco Bay area and Northern California benefited from the generous contributions of our sponsors.  Our attendees feed-back has been most enthusiastic!

Looking to the future, NC WSS has an even larger goal of reaching out to those who would benefit from the message “Capture The Power”. Northern California Women’s Sailing Seminar and it’s home organization, Island Yacht Club, would like to be able to use your donated resources to provide even more services to Seminar Participants;  instructor support, educational materials, participant meals, day trip supplies to those boat owners generous enough to donate the use of their vessels, in addition to providing a budget for scholarships to benefit those participants who have need.
