WOWSA (Women on the Water Sailing) is an opportunity for women to learn and build comradery among female sailors of all levels of experience. Don't worry if you have never sailed before, other women will share their knowledge and you will develop your sailing skills. The only requirements are enthusiasm and non-marking shoes.
Typical things you will learn - parts of the boat, safety, getting the boat ready, getting sails up, SAILING, wind direction, and teamwork.
If you have a PFD you are welcome to bring it, but the boats will have them available for use. Wear warm layers and be prepared for rain as the wind makes it colder on the water.
WOWSA takes place over three Fridays, May 6, 13, and 20th. You will meet at your assigned boat between 5:00 and 5:30 pm. After sailing, all participants and their coaches will meet at CYC for dinner and socializing (no-host bar).
Women of color, black or indigenous who may have financial constraints can receive a 50% discount. Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CYC would like to thank the owners for volunteering their boats and the coaches for volunteering their time.
