Women’s Sailing Seminar

Register online now!

The 25th Annual Women’s Sailing Seminar September 23-24, 2017! Classes taught by women for women.

We offer you a fun, educational and inspiring weekend of both workshops and on the water classes! And, you could 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 binder will include details about our contributors, sponsors and volunteers, to whom we extend a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU!

Have a great weekend and…Capture the Power!

Register by September 2nd and take advantage of the two-day early bird discounted fee of $260, which covers two full days including our Saturday workshops, continental breakfasts, lunches, one raffle ticket, binder with class handouts, WSS t-shirt, and goodies from our sponsors – plus Sunday sailing!

Additional donations are gladly accepted and will help us put on this seminar every year. Registration is first-come, first served. If space is available after September 2nd, registration fees go up to $275 for both days.

Island Yacht Club is an unpretentious, all-volunteer nonprofit yacht club that welcomes all boating enthusiasts! Ask about our IYC introductory club membership special that runs during the Women’s Sailing Seminar! IYC will waive the usual initiation fee. Your annual dues of just $400 will cover your membership all the way through the end of 2018!

IYC has an add-on Small Boat Program for its members to access the club boat, Island Girl, a Santana 22 for an additional $150 per year. This fee is prorated to $75 and is good until January 1, 2018. The full annual price of the Small Boat Program will then be due to continue having club boat access.
